Tiger Moth Conversion

For existing Pilots

We are pleased to offer the chance for existing pilots to complete a type conversion to the Tiger Moth.

Competency on a tail-wheel aircraft are normally a pre-requisite prior to attempting to fly the Harvard (for more information in this, click here), which is a stepping stone to the Spitfire, Hurricane or Mustang (or similar era fighters), since this is the path that original trainee pilots took during that period.


No pre-requisites are required. We will teach you everything there is to know about flying a tail-wheel aircraft in the form of a Tiger Moth.

Your Tiger Moth Checkout will comprise of:

  • Formal briefings on Tail-wheel operations
  • Familiarity of type including the above plus General Handling, Steep turns, Stalls, Spin Avoidance, Take-off and landings (including 3-point, wheelers, grass and hard surfaces), Emergency Procedures

Duration and Costs

The timescales and total cost involved will depend entirely upon individual pilots, previous experience and aptitude.

We suggest you contact us to have a chat where we can assess your experience, aspirations, and discuss timescales.

The hourly instructional rate for conversion is £250.00. This includes aircraft hire, and instruction.
