Finest Hour offers unforgettable flying experiences in a fleet of immaculately-restored vintage and classic aeroplanes, taking in the sights of Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and the Cotswolds. Take the controls yourself as you float over the spires of Oxford in the quintessential English biplane, the Tiger Moth, or view the white horses of Ancient England, Cotswold country houses, castles and palaces or Inspector Morse’s favourite watering hole, all while learning to master this ancient aerial machine.
Finest Hour’s pilots have the broadest imaginable professional aviation experience, including airline, military and display flying, so the opportunity to experience a few gentle aerobatics towards the end of your flight is included in the flight, if desired. If that isn’t enough, Finest Hour also offers the adrenaline-pumping aerobatic experience in its specialist CAP10 aerobatic aeroplane.
Finest Hour flies from two historic locations, Bicester Heritage in Oxfordshire and Cotswold Airport at Kemble, near Cirencester in Gloucestershire.
A flight with Finest Hour makes the perfect gift for a special event, as all flights are sold as professionally-produced and gift-wrapped vouchers to be redeemed for a flight during the 12 months following purchase. The shortest flight duration is 15 minutes, the longest an hour, with 20 and 30 minute flights providing sufficient time to grasp the essentials of the aeroplane, while the 45 minute themed tours of Midsomer Murders, Inspector Morse, English Civil War, Aviation Heritage and Railway history locations also prove popular.
