Aero Legends have released their flight plans for their 2016 Fly With A Spitfire experience. We will be the only company offering a true RAF vintage flight experience – a flight alongside a Spitfire in a dE Havilland Devon – Ex BBMF. We are also the only operator to actually own the aircraft being used for these unique WW2 flying experiences.
A flight alongside a Spitfire is a spine tingling mix of aerial artistry and flying theatre. The Spitfire suddenly appears as your wingman, flying within smiling distance. She manoeuvres around you with breathtaking ease. The de Havilland Devon, an ex RAF passenger aircraft, propels you through the air at the correct operational speed for the Spitfire to dance around your panoramic window.
There are three Spitfire experiences available from Headcorn Aerodrome in Kent.
The Bronze ‘Leeds Castle Spitfire Tour’ experience is a 20 minute flight.
The Silver ‘Battle Of Britain Memorial Tour’ experience is a 30 minute flight.
The Gold ‘Battle Of Britain White Cliffs Tour’ experience is a 40 minute flight.
We will also be launching flying from Sywell Aerodrome in Northamptonshire – more details to be released soon.
