Classic car and classic plane 2 in 1 experience
Imagine combining the thrill of having a classic car for the weekend with the excitement of having a flight experience. Classic Car Days combine drive and flight experiences into one package. We partner with one of East Anglia’s premier flight experience companies to enable you to see the beauty of Norfolk and Suffolk from the sky.
A flight in a PA28 or Cessna 172 is a introductory opportunity to flying. For something really special we offer the rare chance to get your hands on a WWll vintage open-cockpit biplane. Your friends can watch as you come back from a trip and will have a marvellous photo opportunity as you do a low fly-by prior to landing. The presentation of a certificate rounds off a never to be forgotten day.
A weekend package of classic car with plane can be as low as £345 for the PA-28 / Cessna 172 or £435 with the Vintage Stearman.

Fly in a 1930’s American Navy trainer. This biplane is a true classic aircraft. Originally designed to train US and Canadian pilots to fly, the Stearman is a treasured vintage aircraft. Larger than the British Tigermoth, this plane has a 7 cylinder 220hp radial engine. The sound of the wind in the wires and the smell of oil and leather is evocative of flying as it was in days past. Look out over the side of the open cockpit for great views as you cruise along at 100mph. Try your hand at being that ‘silk scarfed’ 1940’s student.
