Have an amazing experience flying in a high performance aerobatic plane. The Pitts S-2A is a two seat tandom aeroplane which is guaranteed to give you a flight that you will never forget. Fly serenely in a beautiful biplane over the stunning Cotswold countryside, with views over the Severn Estuary and Wales or try extreme aerobatics for the adrenaline junkies. If you want, you can experience manoeuvres yourself under your pilot's supervision, perhaps developing a flying sequence of figures as in an air show routine.

If you prefer, you can fly in the Pitts Model 12, this aircraft is only one of two Model 12s in the UK today that has tandem seating. Fly in the same plane as we use for air shows.
