Aero Legends are delighted to learn that passenger flights in ex-military jet aircraft are now approved. The Civil Aviation Authority announced the approval of Class 5 SSAC earlier today. This follows an extensive industry consultation to revise the framework in 2022.
Safety Standards Acknowledgement and Consent (SSAC) is a CAA approved risk analysis framework. Aero Legends have operated flights in Spitfires under this framework for many years. The approval of Class 5 SSAC permits passenger flights in ex-military jet aircraft. This is a logical step, following on from the other approved categories of SSAC.
Aero Legends are elated to confirm that fighter jet experiences will start in April 2023. All fighter jet experiences will operate from our base at North Weald Airfield. We are privileged to be the first operator providing experiences under the revised SSAC framework. Members of the public can now experience outstanding and significant ex-military jet aircraft.
In late 2022, we opened the calendar for passenger flights in the iconic BAC Strikemaster. We are now looking forward to flying those who have already secured their flying date. Those who are ready to be a fighter pilot for the day but haven’t yet booked, can now do so with confidence.
Strikemaster fighter jet experiences are available to book now, from £2250.
