Warbirds – Flying a warbird in the UK has been simplified by the CAA so that the general public can now fly in warbirds such as Spitfires, P-51’s and even as of recently the Buchón (Spanish built Messerschmitt) 109… We hope that in a few years Hawker Restorations will have completed there 2 seat Hurricane project! However this all comes at a cost… Typically a Spitfire ride would cost you between £2500 and £3000 per 20 minute block time which comes under the CAA SSAC for this to be allowed.
Approximately 80% of all allied fighter pilots flew this advanced trainer (AT) before progressing on to the fighters during WW2. Post war it was used intensively as a ground attack, light bomber, target marker and reconnaissance aircraft. (Harvards in combat) The Harvard has incredible fighter like qualities. (Scroll down to see video evidence!)
If you want the ‘Warbird’ WW2 experience then you should fly in the “Wacky Wabbit” Our Harvard has been painted with incredible accuracy to represent AJ841 which flew with the Desert Airforce from 1941 – 1946. AJ841 would have been responsible for training pilots in the North African campaign. As log book evidence shows she was used for ferrying many squadron pilots around from such places as Palestine to Aleppo in Syria during 1942. Evidence also exists of her flying in Lybia and Egypt!
Don’t forget, if you would like to book us for a Harvard flying display contact us for more information, we can also book other warbirds such as the Hurricane and the Spitfire.
