HArvard flight - from just £375

We're extremely proud to offer for 2018 the chance to fly in AJ841 - a North American Harvard which goes by the name of the 'Wacky Wabbit'. Used by the Royal Air Force and United States Air Force in WWII the Harvard was known as the 'Pilot maker'.  The 600hp radial powered AJ841 would have trained pilots during their training towards fighter types such as the Spitfire, Hurricane & P51 Mustang and would have been a common sight at the former RAF Eshott. 

You'll have the chance to take the controls and will even be offered the opportunity to do basic aerobatic flying in this adrenaline fuelled experience. 

To remember your experience we can now film the entire flight in HD from the cockpit including audio. You'll hear the pilot, passenger & air traffic controllers on the video - the perfect addition to this gift experience. 

A huge thanks to Ellen and the whole team who are the loveliest bunch of people and for arranging a surprise for hubby Gary, he loved his flight in the Wacky Wabbit at the Airfield. The whole experience was fab and we will be back! Thank you x
