Vintage Flights South Africa

Gift one of our ever popular Vintage Flights for your special someone! The perfect gift for all occassions.

Birthday milestones such as 50ths and 60ths can be fun to plan, but what about the gifts?  Men can be notoriously tricky to buy for, particularly at a certain age when they’ve pretty much got everything they need.  Sure, we could buy them something for the house, or garden but when was the last time you overheard someone rave about a new lamp or plant pot? If there’s one thing this past year has taught us, it’s to embrace life and make the most of each day.  That is why giving physical gifts is taking a backseat to experiences gifting which has called shotgun in the gift option arena.

Hitting the big 5-0, or having a 60th deserves something extra special.  It’s a fine balance between no longer being the spring chicken but not quite ready for retirement.  There’s still fire in there, and what better way to ignite that flame than with a memorable vintage flight. Reminiscent of a bygone era, these amazing voyages will have the lucky recipients on the edge of their seats and retelling this story for years to come.

The Classic Harvard Flight with Aerobatics operating out Swartkop AFB offers a 30-minute flight in a timeless WW2 advanced trainer plane.  The T6 Harvard originates from North America and was used to help pilots upgrade from SV4 planes to the Spitfire. Its size, retractable gears and adjustable propeller made it the perfect transitionary aircraft.  This warbird boasts a 600hp Pratt & Whitney 9-cylinder engine and has trained the most fighter pilots than any other aircraft in aviation history.

The Tiger Moth Flight offers aviation enthusiasts a truly unique and exhilarating experience.  With a leather helmet, vintage style goggles and an open-air cockpit you will get to experience the world as a WW2 aviator would have.  Those lucky enough may have the opportunity to take control of the aircraft and those daring enough can experience invert flying, with the safety straps securely in place of course.  These scenic flights in the legendary de Havilland DH.82A are guaranteed to make the perfect 50th or 60th Birthday Gift for men.

One really special package that can include the family or group of friends is the Vintage Beech 18 Private Charter Scenic Flight for 9 operating out of Johannesburg.  Flying over iconic areas this scenic experience takes in landmarks such as the Johannesburg South CBD and Gold Reef City.  Next heading in a northerly direction over Soccer City and Northcliff Ridge.  The route continues eastward over NorthGate Dome and Monte Casino before finally heading south to Megawatt Park, Sandton City, and Ellis Park.  Cameras are a must for this adventure of a lifetime.
