  • Enjoy aerobatics from barrel rolls to spins and loop de loop
  • Sit back and enjoy history and nostalgia all rolled into one great flying experience

If you’re going to do a scenic flight it might as well be in one of the great aircrafts of all time – the Tiger Moth. If you’ve not heard of the name, you will certainly know it by sight. That’s because the Tiger Moth is the open cockpit single rotor blade aircraft used by trainee RAF pilots during WW2. It was a time of leather helmets. Goggles. Scarves. Bomber jackets. And the unmistakable chug of the single blade propeller.

On arrival you’ll be given a map and flight plan to plot your course for your navigational reconnaissance flight.

Departing Tyagarah Airstrip, fly by compass and clock as you navigate past the spectacular Minyon Falls, Wanganui Gorge and Mt Warning.

Along the way you'll experience the manoeuvres flown in a dog fight from barrel rolls, Immelmann turns, loop de loop and spins.

Be enthralled by the sound of the Gypsy Major engine as your flight takes you via the Tweed Valley and Murwillumbah to the coastal village of Pottsville then back along the beach at 500 ft to the airfield.

This flight has it all and it's one you'll remember for a long, long time. 

A flight in a Tiger Moth is weather dependent. Flights may be rescheduled where the weather is poor (high winds, rain)

The experience is for 60 minutes from engine start to stop.

Flights are conducted in daylight hours, 7 days a week, subject to weather.

Suitable for all ages. You are required to sign an indemnity form. A parent/ guardian must sign for you if you are under 18 years old. You must be able bodied, capable of getting into and out of the cockpit. Maximum weight is 120kg.
