An adrenaline surge that is un-paralleled! Experience a scenic flight over Gauteng in a vintage WWII aircraft.

Taking to the skies in a Tiger Moth has to be one of the most exhilarating modes of flight. See the world as the World War II aviators saw it, complete with leather helmet, flying goggles and hair flapping in the breeze.  Tiger Moth flights in South Africa offer the intrepid traveller a once-in-a-lifetime experience to enjoy aviation in its purest form.

Named after its British originator, Geoffrey de Havilland, the de Havilland 82 Tiger Moth first flew in 1931. Due to its tough reputation it was later used by the Royal Air Force, The South African Air Force and by other countries to train aviators who flew Spitfires during World War II.  The Tiger Moth was also used as a light bomber during the war, but later, in the era of Hemingway and the Charleston, it became more of a status symbol among the wealthy.

Sadly there aren't many beautiful old Tiger Moth biplanes to be found these days, but if you've set your heart on flying in one, there are charter pilots who man these marvellous old Lords of the Air at your pleasure.  What makes Tiger Moth flights so special is the entire experience, from leather helmet and old-fashioned goggles to an open-air cockpit, brass tube for communicating between pilot and passenger and, of course, the incredible experience of flying inverted, hanging from your safety straps - if you dare. If you're lucky you may even have a chance to take the controls, but if not, the view from the front of the plane is spectacular enough to keep you fully occupied!

Having donned your flying gear, you'll be seated in the front of the plane, with the pilot behind you.  As he issues the instruction "contact", the propeller is swung manually, bringing the engine to life with a throaty roar, and in no time you'll be up and away!

***Please note that our Tiger Moth is currently undergoing relicensing.  Please enquire before booking***
