Fly the historic Vampire fighter jet in London
Fly the de Holland Vampire for yourself for a fighter jet flight like no other. This is a truly unique experience allowing you to fly the RAF’s second fighter jet in service. Sitting next to your instructor, you’ll be shown exactly what the Vampire is capable of and you’ll be amazed at what an aircraft of this age can still do. As well as being flown, you’ll be given the opportunity to fly as you take the stick and fly the de Holland Vampire yourself.
The de Holland Vampire was developed as an experimental aircraft to test jet propulsion as the world moved away from propeller-driven planes. Proving incredible effective with it’s unique twin-boom design, the Vampire went into production in the late 1940s and was still in limited service up until the 1990s.
Your flight is complete custom made to your preference. If you don’t fancy pulling any G-forces, that’s absolutely up to you, however if you want to see what a fighter jet of this nature can do, the pilot will happily oblige. You will be given the chance before your flight to speak to the pilot and discuss exactly what you want to do to ensure your flight is nothing short of spectacular.

- High-speed low-level flying
- Vertical diving and climb
This flight lasts for 25 minutes.
