Fly Alongside – Battle of Britain Experience New Dates Released

Along with our friends at “Flying with Spitfires”, we’re delighted to announce additional availability for a unique “Battle of Britain” experience this summer.

Fly in a helicopter alongside history’s most famous pair of fighter aircraft: the iconic Spitfire and mighty Mk1 Hurricane, R4118, from a former Battle of Britain airfield.

Experience the majesty of the Hawker Hurricane and Supermarine Spitfire in-flight, and witness a sequence of carefully choreographed manoeuvres performed by some of Britain’s most talented and experienced pilots.

Flying from Goodwood Aerodrome (formerly RAF Westhampnett) your route takes you past the site of famous Battle of Britain airfield RAF Tangmere before heading towards Selsey and Thorney Island, former home of RAF Coastal Command.

The flight lasts for about 20 minutes, of which approximately 15 minutes will be alongside the Spitfire and Hurricane.

Availability is limited, so click here to reserve your seat.
