The Deal

The Blue Eye Aviation Club enables would-be airmen and women the chance to travel back in time and receive some wartime RAF training (usually £195 per person). Budding aviators will receive some briefing, before taking to the controls of a De Havilland Tiger Moth, the aircraft used by the RAF to train pilots during World War II, and experience a ten-minute flight across the local countryside. Authentic uniform hire is included, as is a wooden framed photo of pilots with the machine. After a successful flight, participants are rewarded with a certificate and a glass of bubbly or a non-alcoholic alternative.

Choose from the following options for a WWII flight experience:
