When you come for your Spitfire flight, we have a great way to involve your friends and family in the experience. Up to four people can share your trip-of-a-lifetime by taking a seat in our modern, fully-equipped GA8 Chase Plane (a great aircraft in its own right) and fly alongside the Spitfire while you soar above Kent’s famous Battle of Britain countryside.
Through panoramic windows, passengers get a clear view of you in your Spitfire, capturing video and photographs air-to-air. As well as enjoying the thrill of being airborne close to a Spitfire in its natural element. Being a high-wing aircraft, there are no obstructions and passengers also get a fantastic view of the ground where many historic landmarks can be seen.
Passengers can see you and your pilot, exchange waves and discover how much you are enjoying the experience. Before you peel away to continue patrolling the skies. The Chase Plane will then return to Biggin Hill in time to see the Spitfire return and land.
As an add-on to an existing Spitfire flight purchase bookable on the day, the upgrade cost to charter the aircraft is £495 which allows 4 people to fly. Other flights in the Chase Plane can be booked separately at any time subject to weather and availability.
No age or weight restrictions apply but all passengers must occupy their own seat and be able to exit the aircraft unaided.
*All flights subject to availability, weather conditions and air traffic control. Airvan available March – October.
