    Experience the thrill & nostalgia of World War II fighter aircraft in a genuine piece of aviation history: the North American Harvard fighter trainer.

    Each flight is tailor-made so you get the best experience possible, ranging from adrenaline-pumping aerobatics and attack manoeuvres at up to 370km/h and over 3Gs, to a serene flight where you just soak up the nostalgic experience and watch the world drift by.

    Your experience starts with an up-close familiarisation with the aircraft, where you can see the wonderful engineering of the 40s.  After a brief about the safety equipment and flight profile, you are strapped into the rear cockpit of the Harvard, where the original instruments & controls take you back to the 40s.

    The enormous radial engine bursts into life and after a short while you're airborne, and the amazing 360 degree view from the bubble canopy can really be appreciated.  Your flight takes you past the fantastic backdrop of Hobart and Mount Wellington, before heading down towards Bruny Island and the edge of the Southern Ocean.
