We offer ab initio training on Tiger Moths. We offer conversion training from other aircraft types and also teach aerobatics and formation flying. The Tiger Moth is a perfect training aircraft: it is easy to fly and forgiving of pilot mistakes, yet at the same time to get the best from the aircraft you have to fly smoothly and accurately, which will help you fly other aircraft better too
