Anytime Slingsby Firefly Military Flight with a Fighter Pilot
We really like this Driving Experiences Experience located handily in Chichester, West Sussex.
Strapped in to an ex-military T67 Slingsby Firefly, complete a series of breathtaking aerobatic manoeuvres. Begin with a flight and safety briefing from an ex-military instructor before getting kitted out in a flying suit. Then take to the air in the Slingsby, sitting alongside the instructor during a thrilling aerobatic flight demo. Take the controls to try flying the manoeuvres yourself.
Flights operate all year round, Monday to Saturday.
Flying is dependent on the weather and it is crucial to call the venue the afternoon before the flight for a weather check.
Expect to spend between two and three hours on-site, with around 35 minutes in the aeroplane and up to 30 minutes ‘hands on stick’ time. Actual flying time is at the instructor’s discretion.
Share the aircraft with just the instructor. All briefings are shared.
There are cafe and bar facilities and up to two spectators are welcome (and can join in during the briefings). We strongly recommend someone else drives home; this is a high-adrenaline experience which can be very tiring.
Wear flat shoes with good grip – trainers are ideal. Women – please wear trousers not a skirt. A flying suit is provided.
Minimum age is 12, maximum height is 6’5”. Maximum weight is 17 stone. Over 71s must supply a doctor’s letter confirming suitability.
