The Belgian Vintage Flights P51 Mustang experience is completely impossible to describe in just a few words, because it’s just so outstanding in every way. You don’t even have to be a flyer, to feel the true adrenaline rush of this great historical aircraft. The combination of professionalism, excellent hospitality and exceptional standards of the aircraft itself, are utterly amazing. Plus it’s so easy to arrange. From London, via City airport, direct to Antwerp airport, a 200m walk to the Aviation Factory to meeting the team, see the aircraft and then begin the presentation of the history of SCAT VII. With the briefing and equipment checks done, there is nothing more to do than experience the true feeling of those young pilots of WWII, by stepping into this magnificent aircraft and go flying. The overall experience is mind blowing, I really had to pinch myself afterwards, whilst having a beer in Antwerp City. What an incredible day out and exceptional value for money.
As the aircraft has full dual controls (TF-51 conversion), Vintage Flights also offers Mustang type conversion training in cooperation with FASTAERO, a premier warbird maintenance and training organization.
