3. Bookings and Cancelationsย 

a. Location: The preferred location for the experience flights are at Peterborough Conington airfield and Old Warden.

Old Warden – Any Experience flight booked from the Old Warden will require the customer to purchase an airshow ticket to enter the airfield from the Old Warden Shuttleworth collection web site. Suppose the flight can not be completed on the day for any reason from Old Warden. In that case, the flight will be transferred to another Old warden events day or one of our Peterborough dates. The customer booking a flight on the Old Warden dates must purchase and event tickets for the Old Warden events day from https://www.shuttleworth.org/events/ before arrival.

b. Length of flight: A 20 or 30-minute flight is taken from when the aircraft has started and moves to taxi. This includes the flight time and the final taxi until the aeroplane stops, known as “block time” or “Chock to Chock” We normally allow a 3-5 minute taxi at either end of the flight giving you a minimum of 10 minutes of air time on a 20-minute flight; however, we aim to provide you with longer. The T6 Harvard is a thirsty girl and may burn 120 litres of fuel in the air and can also consume a lot of gas while on the ground. So we suggest, for example, if you want 20 minutes in the air book a 30 min flight to be sure. (This will give you approximately 20 minutes of airtime)

c. ย Maintenence: Our aircraft is subject to the most stringent checks and maintenance programs. Sometimes in a busy year, these maintenance schedules such as 50-hour checks may come around quickly and interrupt our display or flight experience programs. If this happens, we shall email you and look for an alternative date at the earliest opportunity. ย Safety First!

d. Pilot safety:ย Sometimes, pilots can be as temperamental as the machinery! As we only use the most professional pilots, sometimes, they may suffer from a simple cold that may stop them from flying. If this happens, we shall email you and look for an alternative date at the earliest opportunity. ย Safety First!

e. CAA ATO:ย Our aircraft operate experience flight under a CAA ย ATOย (Approved Training Organisation), including a small selection of airfields, including Peterborough. We aim to run all experience flights from Peterborough Conington Airfield; however, due to circumstances out of our control (i.e. Covid restrictions), flight locations may change to one of our other ATO locations.

f. Expiry of flight: Your flight booking will be valid for 12ย  months from the date of purchase, and then it will expire. If you would like to extend, you must contact us before the 12 months is up to extend. We don’t charge for this as some companies do; however, please remain in communications with us. We appreciate difficulties, especially with covid in this difficult time.

g. Flight transfers to other customers: All flights are transferable to another person with a minimum of 7 days’ notice before the flight is due to take place.

h. Age limit:ย We have a minimum age limit of 16 for Experience flights as an experience flight is deemed a flying lesson completed with a flying instructor.

i. Height restrictions:ย For the T6 Harvard, we have a height restriction of 6โ€ฒ 5.โ€

j. Weight restrictions:ย The maximum weight we allow in the T6 Harvard is 18 stone which is 252 pounds or 115 kg
