30 Minute De Havilland Chipmunk Aerobatic Flight in Devon
30 Minute De Havilland Chipmunk Aerobatic Flight in Devon

Nerves of Steel and a stomach of solid rock? Then aerobatic flying is for you

The experience starts with your feet firmly on the ground during a comprehensive briefing

You'll chat through any specific requirements with your instructor so that the flight can be tailored to what you want (and how brave you're feeling)

Then climb aboard your plane - a Chipmunk RAF Trainer

Once airborne, your expert instructor will show you what your plane can do - so hang on tight for a breathtaking full aerobatic sequence, which might include loops, rolls, stall-turns, wing-overs, barrel rolls, Cuban eights and rolls-off-the-top

The ride can be as stomach-churning or as gentle as you like - it's up to you

Then if you want to have a go (and we're pretty sure that you will) your instructor will hand over the controls and you can experience the thrill of flying a plane.
