"Just a brief note to let you know that I had a really fabulous experience yesterday flying with John in the Stampe. The whole show was good, the welcome, the briefing, the flying jacket and silk scarf and the 'souvenirs' of the flight were all done so well that it made a really memorable day out. On the way home I seriously considered re-mortgaging the house, selling the dog, raiding my grand daughter's trip to see Santa in Lapland fund and cancelling the holiday to buy an historic biplane, but my mum would not let me... Thank you for making my sixtieth birthday treat so memorable, I really can't wait for my seventieth birthday!"
Welcome to Tiger Airways
Tiger Airways takes its name from the Tiger Moth, probably the best known of all the 1930's Vintage Bi-planes. Tiger Airways was the West Country's first modern provider of Tiger Moth Flights and is still the only provider of Vintage Bi-plane Flights in the West Midlands and South West. Offering more than simply joy rides, pleasure flights or scenic flights, we specialize in providing the public with the chance of 'hands on' flying in World War Two Vintage, Open Cockpit, Bi-Plane, Training Aeroplanes from the Tiger Moth era. A flight in one of our vintage aeroplanes, designed more than seventy years ago, is, we believe, the most enthralling of all the experience days now on offer. Include some aerobatics in the flight and you are enjoying the most exciting of all adventure days. More about the planes here.
Tiger Airways' aim is to make the unique, and exhilarating, experience of actually flying an open cockpit bi-plane available to as many people as possible. To that end we offer a variety of packages to suit all tastes and pockets.
Strategically placed in Gloucestershire, right by the M5, Tiger Airways is the nearest supplier of Vintage Biplane Flights for the people of Birmingham, Bristol, Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Somerset, Wiltshire, Warwickshire, Devon, Cornwall, Shropshire, Staffordshire, all of South Wales and Central Wales and much of Oxfordshire. However our clientel is not confined to residents in those areas, and people have travelled from, Yorkshire, Lancashire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk, Kent, Hampshire, Middlessex, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Surrey, Manchester, and of course London simply to fly with us. We would like to think that visitors from Scotland, The USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, France, Germany, Belgium, Holland, Ireland, Japan and many other places, who enjoyed a flight with Tiger Airways came to Gloucester just to fly with us, but honesty compels us to admit that some of the other attractions of the Cotswolds may have played a part in fetching them to England.
Tiger Airways' main base of operations is Gloucestershire Airport , once better known as Staverton, the home of the famous Gloster Aircraft Company. Staverton is immediately adjacent to the M5 between Cheltenham and Gloucester and easily accessible from Junction 10.
Tiger Airways is committed to maintaining the highest possible safety standards; all our aircraft are maintained to public transport, not private flight, standards. Our pilots are all licensed to commercial or airline transport standard and our management team led by Chief Pilot and Chief Flying Instructor, Tizi Hodson and Flight Operations Manager, Chris Rollings is probably the most experienced ever enjoyed by any comparable operation.
