Spitfire Coastal Patrol

75 minute ‘Coastal Patrol’ Flight

The Ultimate Spitfire adventure. Plan your coastal route with your pilot.

Options include: Take off from RAF Biggin Hill and fly down to Beachy Head before heading along the coastline to Dover via Eastbourne, Bexhill, Hastings, Rye and Folkestone. Alternatively fly from Biggin Hill down to the Solent and then to Beachy Head via Portsmouth, Bognor Regis, Brighton and Eastbourne.

With over an hour of flying time you’ll be able to see the very best views of the Kent and the South coast.

For part of the flight you’ll have the opportunity to fly the aircraft under the guidance of your Spitfire pilot so you can say that ‘I’ve taken the controls of a Spitfire!’

Access to our airside Spitfire lounge and a guided tour of our Spitfire Factory is included for you and up to four guests.
