Weekday Slingsby Firefly Flight with a Fighter Pilot
Get a load of this Driving Experiences Experience located handily in Chichester, West Sussex.
Take to the skies in an ex-military T67 Slingsby Firefly and brace yourself for a series of breathtaking aerobatic manoeuvres! After a thorough flight and safety briefing from an ex-military instructor, get kitted out in a flying suit ready for take-off. Hold on tight through a variety of different aerobatic figures such as loops, rolls, spins and turns. Choose how far to push the boundaries – the trip could be mild or wild!
Flights operate all year round Monday – Friday, excluding bank holidays.
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.
