Chipmunk Flight Experiences

See Newcastle and Northumberland from another aviation classic - the de Havilland Canada DHC-1 Chipmunk.

Replacing the Tiger Moth as the RAF's primary training aircraft in 1950, you can follow in the footsteps of royalty as HRH Prince Philip took his first flying lesson in a Chipmunk in 1952 and King Charles received his initial military pilot training in a Chipmunk.

Individual Chipmunk introductory flight experiences

30 minutes: £199

60 minutes: £299

During your 30 or 45 minute individual introductory flight experiences in our Chipmunk, G-BYSJ, you can take in the views of Northumberland's historic castles, breathtaking beaches or the famous landmarks on Newcastle's skyline.

de Havilland Days 

30 minutes in each aircraft: £449

60 minutes in each aircraft: £799

Why not join us for the ultimate de Havilland experience on our de Havilland Days? Get the best of both worlds of open and closed cockpit flying with our experienced pilots. Fly in the front seat of one our stunning Tiger Moths. Once you've landed and recovered from the exhilaration of open cockpit flying, hop into the back seat of our Chipmunk so you can see the difference for yourself during your second flight of the day.

Formation Chipmunk and Tiger Moth introductory flight experiences

30 minutes: £449

60 minutes: £799

Or immerse yourself in the history and nostalgia of two of de Havilland's most iconic aircraft and go for a formation flight with a friend or loved one, flying alongside one another in our Chipmunk and one of our distinctive Tiger Moths. The biggest decision you'll have to make is who flies in which aircraft.
