Designed by Geoffrey de Havilland and built by the de Gavilland Aircraft Company, the de Havilland DH.82 Tiger Moth is a 1930’s British biplane. The DH.82 Tiger Moth is operated by the Royal Air Force (RAF) and other operators as a primary trainer aircraft. In addition, the Second World War had RAF Tiger Moths operating in other capacities, including maritime surveillance and defensive anti-invasion preparations, with some aircrafts even being outfitted to function as armed light bombers.
The Tiger Moth was the principal type used in the British Commonwealth Air Training Plane and elsewhere. This is where thousands of military pilots got their first taste of flight in a Tiger Moth. The Tiger Moth required skill and concentration to perform well when used for aerobatic and formation training. However the RAF found the Tiger Moth’s handling ideal for training fighter pilots as it was generally docile and forgiving in the normal flight phases encountered during their initial training.
The Cessna Skyhawk is the ultimate flight training aircraft for student pilots and is the most popular single-engine aircraft ever built.
Boasting great visibility, simplistic flight characteristics and a classic clean cockpit outfit, the Cessna Skyhawk piston has a slow landing speed and lenient stall. These characteristics make the Cessna Skyhawk ideally suited for student pilots, perfect to help you soar.
We currently have two C172 aircrafts in our fleet ready to explore the scenic Central Otago skies.
