The Tiger Moth is a classic 1930s open cockpit biplane that most of the RAFs pilots learnt to fly before progressing to such types as the Spitfire, Hurricane, Lancaster, Sunderland etc. There are only a small number of Tiger Moths that remain fully certified for Trial Flying Lessons. Therefore, this represents a rare opportunity to undertake a flight in one of these classic aircraft and experience what it was like to be a trainee pilot in WWII.

The de Havilland DH.82 Tiger Moth was the principal type used in the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan where thousands of military pilots got their first taste of flight. The RAF found the Tiger Moth’s handling ideal for training future fighter pilots. A robust little machine, it is generally docile and forgiving in normal flight. The Tiger Moth responds well to control inputs, and is fairly easy to fly for a tail-dragger.
PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEO

“We could not let this week end without saying a big ‘thank you’ to you all for a brilliant afternoon this week. I had the most memorable experience flying over Leeds Castle in your World War II RAF de Havilland Tiger Moth trainer. The afternoon, meeting and talking with you all really was the icing on the cake for me.”
