Where you can go flying in an historic aeroplane around the UK
Welcome to something new for Aeroplane: our guide to the UK’s burgeoning vintage aircraft flight experiences scene. Listed inside are the different operators of passenger flights in historic aeroplanes, from trial lessons in light trainers to rides in Spitfires and Mustangs. This rapidly expanding industry shows no signs of slowing down — at one end of the spectrum, there have probably never been more chances to go flying in a Tiger Moth; at the other, the Safety Standards Acknowledgement and Consent (SSAC) rules brought in a few years ago by the Civil Aviation Authority have permitted paid rides in types that were previously out of reach, and that range is still expanding. So, if you want to go flying in a piece of aviation heritage, there’s probably never been a better time.
