Aero Legends to offer experience flights in Strikemaster

North Weald-based Aero Legends is to offer flights in a BAC Strikemaster for those with a valid pilot’s license.

Following approval from the Civil Aviation Authority, the respected operator is set to launch Jet Legends, a ‘top gun’-style ex-military jet training and flying experience brand.

Working closely with North Wales Military Aviation Services, the company will operate former Royal Saudi Air Force Strikemaster G-RSAF from its North Weald home for both type experience flights and full conversion courses.

The use of the 1974-built jet will enable customers to “be a fighter pilot for the day” and savour military-style flying in a safe environment. The opportunity, set to commence in May, will be available to those who hold a valid ICAO Pilots License, with prices starting at £1,950.

“This success is largely down to our fantastic customers, pilots, staff and volunteers all of whom contribute in their own way to our ability to preserve such an iconic collection of historic aircraft,” a spokesperson said. “As with Aero Legends, you’ll be flying with the elite. Our pilots are some of the very best in the world having flown with the Red Arrows, as RAF fast jet pilots and military instructors. We pride ourselves on the calibre of our pilots, ensuring you are always in safe hands.”
