Tiger Moth Flights
There are few experiences more exciting than soaring through the South African skies with the wind in your hair and the roar of engines drowning out the sounds and thoughts of the rest of the world.
The Tiger Moth biplane aircraft was an integral part of the fighting force of World War II, having been developed in the 1930’s. Today, it remains one of the world’s favourite flying machines, both for recreational pilots and for training initiatives.
Although originally intended as a bomber plane, the Tiger Moth soon became a status symbol for the wealthy and influential, and retains some of the glamour and glitz of this time. The De Havilland 82 Tiger Moth and the 1941 Tiger Moth aircraft are used for these tours.
These Tiger Moth flights are made extra special by their authentic appeal. Passengers are given leather helmets, original-style goggles and a brass tube through which they communicate with the pilot. Although various packages are available, flights invariably include hanging upside down in the air, soaring over the South African landscape and witnessing the magnificence of the country in a brand new way.
Guests fly at the front of the place, benefiting from the best possible views, while the pilot provides a running commentary from behind them.
The packages differ in terms of the time spent in the air and, therefore, the extent of the scenery seen. For certain tours, the Tiger Moth soars over the spectacular Magaliesberg Mountain Range as well as the world-famous Cradle of Humankind. Other tours take visitors over the commercial hub of Johannesburg.
This is unlike any other flying experience. Seeing the landscape from the open cockpit of a Tiger Moth means experiencing flight in its purest, most simple form; not being cluttered by shiny gadgets and technology, but appreciating the glory of the world’s earliest pilots.
Group bookings can be made. This is the ideal gift for someone special and makes for a fabulously unique lifetime experience.
