"Absoloutely Brilliant Experience."

PLEASURE FLIGHTS

Sightseeing at its most civilised with our de Havilland Devon pleasure flights. A throw back to the dawn of mass air travel, when the de Havilland Devon was THE short haul passenger airliner to be seen in during the 1950s. Following WWII the de Havilland Devon was leading the expansion of scheduled flights, the Devon was used by many airlines in the UK and remained part of the Royal Flight until the 1970’s. As such, our Devon recently featured in the Netflix production ‘The Crown’.

YOUR AIRCRAFT

We fly our guests in an ex-RAF 1946 de Havilland Devon, famously used by Air Chief Marshall Sir Basil Embry as his personal transport during his time as Commander of Allied Forces, Central Europe. In 1985 the aircraft joined the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (BBMF) at RAF Coningsby. The Devon is a comfortable aircraft inside, with roomy seats and large panoramic windows. There are excellent photo opportunities.

IN THE AIR

Transported back in time, we will fly you over some of the country’s most beautiful landmarks. The purring Gipsy Queen piston engines and comfortable interior are a throwback to the golden years of British aviation.
