T6 Harvard Trial Lessons


The Texan the Pilot Maker the Window Breaker – whatever you call the Harvard these lessons are going to be really rather special after all it’s not every day you get to take a trial lesson in an historic Harvard warbird! These flights operate out of Sywell Aerodrome in Northamptonshire. Very much in keeping with the halcyon days of flying this popular General Aviation airfield is a favourite amongst pilots with great facilities and a very appropriately Art Deco-styled hotel on site too. A truly charming place that’s full of classic aircraft so the Harvard fits right in. With its powerful radial engine and fully retractable undercarriage the Harvard certainly looks and sounds like the business too. What we love most about these experiences is that they are not just pleasure flights where you sit back and enjoy the ride. If you’re up for it you’ll be handling this American beast in the skies above Northamptonshire for a truly thrilling trial lesson. In fact the Harvard was used extensively around the world not only as a training aeroplane but also as a fighter despite it being seen as something of a ‘hack’. That’s because the Canadian Car and Foundry continuously worked on the design and the T6-G was much improved making it a viable combat plane with greater fuel capacity a steering tailwheel and a more ergonomic cockpit too. The Harvard you’ll be flying in was actually built as a standard T6 in 1943 but then went back to the factory to be upgraded to a T6-G in 1949. Working as a trainer for many years followed by a stint with the Haitian Air Force she finally came to the UK in 1989 and is now based at Sywell flying under G-DDMV. We are offering Harvard lessons that last 15 20 30 45 60 minutes. On all durations you’ll have the chance to actually fly this impressive plane yourself as you zoom across the Northamptonshire sky around Sywell. Take in the views take in that noise take in that unforgettable smell of hot oil and love the day you met the wonderful Harvard!
