If you’re going to do a scenic flight, it might as well be in one of the great aircraft 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.
