30 MINUTE SPITFIRE FLIGHT TO THE NEEDLES

LEE-ON-SOLENT AIRPORT

Strap into the aircraft, experience the Rolls-Royce Merlin start, and then taxy out for pre-flight checks and take-off. This experience will see you flying one of the Academy's Spitfire TR9's straight out to sea and over the English Channel and on to the famous white cliffs at the Needles. Enroute you'll enjoy the sight of the Spitfire's famous elliptical wings either side of you, and if you elected to try some aerobatics you'll marvel at the power, maneuverability and grace of this aircraft that is over 70 years old. You will also have the opportunity to touch the controls and fly the aircraft yourself.  SM520 will be your aircraft for this flight.

COST: £2750  INC VAT

55 MINUTE SPITFIRE FLIGHT AROUND THE ISLE OF WIGHT

LEE-ON-SOLENT AIRPORT

 

This is experience follows the same format as the 45 minute above flight however with the extra time you'll have a lot more flexibility to see not only the white cliffs at the Needles but also so many of the other landmarks that the south coast has to offer.  You'll also have time to do as many aerobatics as you like in the unlimited airspace that covers most of the island. On this trip you'll be flying a Spitfire over the most iconic WW2 landmarks in the UK. SM520 will be your aircraft for this flight.

COST: £4750 INC VAT
