Wonderful experience. A gift for my husband's birthday. All the staff at Aero Legends were so kind and friendly. Very thorough on safety and they tailored theexperience so it felt right for him. Lovely cafe on site so I was happy while he did his preflight briefing. Stayed in London and journey via tube and minicab was no bother at all.

False Advertising! I am utterly disappointed with my experience with Aerolegends. I purchased a voucher with high hopes, valid for a year and requiring redemption by March 23, 2024. However, the nightmare began when they claimed the voucher had expired and should have been redeemed in 2023. This voucher was not just any purchase; it was a heartfelt gift for a 60th birthday, a present that friends and loved ones all chipped in to afford. The excitement of the occasion was tarnished by Aerolegends' careless mishandling of the redemption date. Not only did Aerolegends fail to honor the terms clearly stated on the voucher, but they also displayed a lack of accountability for their mistake. Their refusal to acknowledge their error reflects poorly on their customer service standards. This experience has left me feeling cheated and undervalued as a customer. I would strongly advise others to think twice before engaging with Aerolegends, as their disregard for customer satisfaction is evident in their negligent handling of voucher expiration dates.

Appalling customer service Awful experience. The company do not honour their voucher expiry dates. We had a voucher that clearly stated that the BOOKING needed to be made before March 2024. We were then told that the voucher was expired because the booking hadn't been made in 2023. This caused my father a great deal of stress as this was an expensive gift he had recieved from his friends and family for his 60th Birthday. When I called to speak to the company to explain that what they were doing was not legal nor did it meet their own terms and conditions, I was spoken to rudely.

Absolutely wonderful. I booked the Aero Legends 'ultimate experience' which involves flying the Tiger Moth, Harvard and then the 'crowning glory', the WW2 Spitfire with top pilot 'Parky'. We few across Kent in formation with the great Charlie Brown, down the English Channel, past Beachy Head and then did several passes of the White Cliffs of Dover. Returning to Headcorn, we di several 'barrel rolls' over the airfield. All staff where excellent in their performancies.

Wonderful experience. Absolutely first class. I flew the Tiger Moth, the Harvard and then the Spitfire with Parky’. Wonderful experience. Reception and staff excellent. Thrill of a lifetime. Don’t die with a ‘dream’, die with a MEMORY. My ‘memory’ will never fade.

Absolutely incredible experience and worth every penny. The venue at Compton Abbas is beautiful with great food and drink choices for family and friends. The customer service and attentiveness from the staff was phenomenal - they answered every question and anticipated every need. I requested a flight extension on short notice which they were happy to accommodate. The training and conduct of the ground and flight crew is impressive - I felt as safe as I would boarding a 787. Make sure to add the in-flight video option so you can relive the experience - I assure you that you will want to.

Amazing ‘Top Gun’ experience I flew in the Strikemaster for 25 minutes over north east Essex and had such a fantastic time. The team at north weald were great, I received a comprehensive briefing on the flight and how to use the ejection seat, and Sean, the pilot provided a full pre flight briefing of what to expect. Amazing experience and most certainly recommended

Fantastic experience. All the staff at Areo Legends, Headcorn were very professional, helpful and friendly which put me at ease from the outset. My flight in the WW2 Spitfire, “Elizabeth”, with such an experienced pilot, “Parky” on the 15th October 2023 was a fantastic and unforgettable experience. A long held dream that has now been fulfilled, thank you. Ian Craig-Mair

An amazing flight experience, with full aerobatics and a superb pilot in command, a "must add" to any bucket list A warm and friendly welcome at historic North Weald Airfield, followed by an in-depth briefing about the Strikemaster aircraft and use of the ejector seat. A fabulous flight experience, pulling 4G in loops and also doing other aerobatics during the flight. Piloted by the very experienced and friendly Sean. An experience not to be missed.

Outstanding and emotional experience The White Cliffs of Dover was my chosen experience with Aero Legends which was able to incorporate a near as can be delivered flypast over two special two places to me. The first being ex RAF Hornchurch which is now the beautiful Hornchurch Country Park and the other being the Commonwealth War Graves section of nearby St Andrews church in Hornchurch which has numerous pilots, groundcrew and other service personnel from WW2 remembered within it. The team at Aero Legends provided a most helpful and enjoyable experience from the start to finish. In my excitement for what was to come I hardly slept the night before and I also arrived exceptionally early so as to avoid any possible travel issues. Despite this Laura my host for the day greeted me enthusiastically and politely ushered me into their HQ at North Weald airfield for coffee and a place to relax prior to the day’s events. She also provided a comprehensive verbal brief alongside a short safety video, administration and a kitting out of flying suit, boots and gloves. The pilot for my flight was to be a man called Charlie Brown, an outstanding ex RAF pilot of over 40 years flying experience with countless hours on many types of aircraft and qualifications to match his record. After the flight and during conversation with him I learnt that our paths had crossed nearly forty years earlier during our time on the same RAF Squadron. I felt relaxed being in the safest possible hands of this man as he rolled out the air map of SE England onto the briefing table. It was here that he invited us to give him out thoughts of what we would like from today’s Spitfire flight and at this point he outlined that it was to be about as much as what we wanted from the flight more than anything else. I had a rough idea that we would be transiting over the beautiful countryside of Essex and Kent and so in addition to this I requested a flypast over my special places. These two I knew were very close to highly controlled airspace for Heathrow and London City airports and Charlie was able to scrutinise and provide a near as possible ‘Glancing Blow’ flypast to them. As the flight time neared my excitement grew and I was able to chat with two other Spitfire flight individuals as they returned from their respective sorties. The weather for our day was great too with warm temperatures and superb visibility into a wonderfully blue sky alongside a few light fluffy clouds for texture. As we thundered down the grass strip of Ex RAF North Weald and lifted into the air the full emotion of exactly what I was undertaking in this remarkable aircraft, piloted by an ex RAF pilot and into the skies where it operated in wartime overwhelmed me. It would have been difficult to not have done so. Flying predominantly at around 1500 feet and at 250 MPH for the flight over the beautiful sprawling countryside was amazing. Charlie radioed if I’d like to take hold of the control column and fly it, this I did and it became apparent just how precise to my inputs it was. Our flight took us eastwards towards the ‘Battle Of Britain Memorial’ site at Capel-Le-Ferne on the Kent coast and it was here that a Victory Roll beautifully executed by Charlie seemed a fitting flypast at this special site. Another shortly followed over the ‘White Cliffs of Dover’. As we made our return for home home we passed close to ex RAF Manston, a satellite and forward operating base for the many Spitfire Squadrons based at RAF Hornchurch during both the Dunkirk evacuation and Battle of Britain. Finally we routed down the Thames estuary and banked hard right towards my special places that I requested a flypast over. I saw the unmistakable towering green church spire of St Andrews church in Hornchurch approaching rapidly on the horizon and beneath us the adjacent farmlands that bordered Hornchurch Country Park (ex RAF Hornchurch). Charlie then executed the tightest of 360 turns and radioed to me that we are near as possible as he can get, at this point I realised the high manoeuvrability of this aircraft as my insides continued going straight on and my body went circling the aircraft. My dream had finally been realised and again my eyes moistened as it sunk into me that I’d like to think I’d paid my own very small respect to all those brave aircrew and groundcrews who paid the ultimate sacrifice whilst serving at our beloved airfield below me. It is not lost on me how privileged on many levels I was with having this experience and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of those at Aero Legends for making this happen for me. Thank you and all being well then see you again on my 65th.
