Finest Hour Experiences


Finest Hour provides luxury gift vouchers and aerobatic flying experiences, which can be redeemed in exchange for flights in its fleet of immaculately-restored aeroplanes; your instructor will be one of the most broadly qualified and experienced pilots there is.

Operating from Chiltern Park airfield near Wallingford, themed flying lessons in the iconic Tiger Moth biplane include the opportunity to tour the River Thames, Ancient England, and the scenes of your favourite TV programmes, including Downton Abbey, Inspector Morse and Midsomer Murders. On Summer evenings and during special events, we also operate from the historic airfield at Bicester Heritage, where our tours cover local aviation heritage and sites of the English Civil War. We are one of the few operators who can legally offer the option of some gentle biplane aerobatics at the end of every flight, but only if desired! For those seeking the ultimate adrenaline rush, our aerobatic experience provides the chance to try for yourself the moves you've seen at the airshows, an experience that will stay with you for a lifetime!
