formation flights 

A really unique experience - we'll take two of our aircraft up together as you chase each other around the skies above Northumberland. 

After a briefing, you'll get the chance to take the controls of one of our modern aircraft with your fellow pilots in a second aircraft!

You'll get to see the stunning coastline, castles and scenery that this wonderful county has to offer.  

A new experience to 2017 was the amazing formation flight. You'll have half an hour in the sky together. Apart from the aircraft next to you and the countryside of Northumberland, you can expect to see;

Alnwick Castle, Brunton Airfield, Dunstanburgh Castle, Warkworth Castle, Alnmouth, Amble & Druridge Bay.
