Why buy from us?
This really is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for enthusiasts of Spitfires, as you’ll get the unique opportunity to be the sole passenger on this coastal Spitfire flight. Following the same flight paths taken by many Battle of Britain pilots during WWII, you’ll head over the stunning White Cliffs of Dover for a 55 minute flying experience, including 45 minutes airborne. And there’s no more appropriate a departure point than from Biggin Hill Airport in Kent, which was the home of the Spitfire fighter bases during the Battle of Britain. You’ll take off and head over the Kentish Downs towards Dover and its outstandingly beautiful White Cliffs, stood majestically some 500 ft above the English Channel. You’ll also pass over the Battle of Britain Memorial Centre at Capel-le-Ferne, instantly recognisable from the White Cliffs chalk stone statue carved by sculptor Harry Gray, which is both a poignant yet simply fitting tribute to the context of its location and its significance. Words alone can’t do justice to the range of emotions you’ll feel on this experience; it’s evocative, it’s stirring, it’s powerful, it’s emotional. Quite simply, it’s an experience you will carry with you all your life, as you fly in a Spitfire over the White Cliffs of Dover just as the fighter pilots did whilst sacrificing their lives for the freedom of so many future generations.
