Champagne Flights Over Cornwall in May and June
Sit back and take in the gentle thrill of thirties aviation in one of our magnificent de Havilland Dragon Rapide biplanes.

There are few things as fragile - or as expensive to repair - as an old aircraft. We have a talented and dedicated team of volunteers and technicians who work tirelessly to restore as many as possible of our charges to airworthiness, and then to keep the rigours of time at bay to keep them flying.
