Climb aboard our airplanes for a tour of the local sights and experience everything our veterans did on their first flight. This is a non-aerobatic experience of which you will never forget.
The Harvard was the used for advanced training which included air-air combat using a combination of aerobatic manoeuvres. This flight is for you if you want to experience the freedom of 3-dimensions. An exhilarating flight to remember.
This flight will include both airplanes and extends the duration of the flight by about 5 minutes. You will never fly closer to another airplane. Formation flying was, and still is, one of the building blocks of defence and tactical coordination. This flight is for you if you would like to experience the precision required to fly in unison. This flight is a non-aerobatic, one wingspan away, flight you'll never forget!
