Flight in a performance Nanchang is a real flying experience backed by a no-compromise program. With excellent visibility, great performance and an experienced career pilot; you will have an impressive memorable story to tell. With the option of being fully aerobatic, it can be as exciting or as sedate as you need.

White Waltham is also the perfect aeroclub for bringing your friends and family. Excellent food and great viewing opportunities mean your guests are involved too.

Experiences are £400.

Personalised experiences are also available and priced to suit the requirement. A pick-up from a nearby aerodrome may also be possible by agreement and at an extra cost.

The aircraft you will be flying in is an export version of the Nanchang CJ-6, the PT-6A. Originally it had an Huosai 285hp engine and as part of a 3 year, 400 hour restoration, the engine was replaced with a far more powerful Vedeneyev 385hp radial engine, thus significantly improving performance.

It is fully CAA certified and now performs like a WWII fighter with a 2,000 feet per minute climb and 180kt (200mph!) speed. A flight test of this aircraft also featured in Pilot Magazine in February 2019. You can read this article here

Why not fly, instead of watching it in the sky, standing by.

  • “It is really an amazing aircraft and I was so impressed with the professionalism and duty of care that I received from Bob Davy; a truly great pilot and a memorable day.

    I kept talking about it with family and friends for weeks and have some amazing photos that I shared on my social media pages.”

  • “My experience was amazing. It was my first time flying in a light aircraft and I certainly felt nervous leading up to the big day. I was immediately put at ease and we took things slow and gradual.   I could not have been more grateful and wished that I had of flown before now; what have I been missing.”

    MRS A STERNLAY, 2020
  • “I had been flying in a PA-28 before and it was nothing like this. All the way from briefing to engine shutdown was simply awesome. I had no idea that flying could actually be this much fun.

    I really didn't want the experience to end, and now, I am keen to trying something else.”
