We are Vintage Flying

All about us...


Vintage Flying offers a wide variety of flight experiences combining the thrill of open cockpit flying with a healthy dose of nostalgia from the early days of aviation.
Whether you want to fly yourself or treat a loved one to a day they will never forget, Vintage Flying has got the right package for you. From a 20 minute trial flight that gives you a taste of flying in aviation’s Golden Age, right through to a complete training package to become a qualified pilot and obtain your Private Pilots License. Should you wish, we also offer the unique opportunity to fly with the famous Red Baron’s Fokker Triplane.

Vintage Flying is run by Paul Ford and offers a personalised experience focused on the enjoyment of those flying with us. Nothing is too much trouble and you’re assured to receive the warmest of welcomes!
Safety is paramount and we operate in close conjunction with Derby Aero Club and are fully regulated by the Civil Aviation Authority.
