Richard III Flying Experience

£195  (£65 each, 3 passengers)

During a 40-minute flight accompanied by an in-flight commentary, you will fly along Richards route from Leicester to Bosworth before orbiting the Battlefield.

Your Richard III Flying Experience will take place in a 4-seater aircraft with room for yourself and 2 fellow enthusiasts.

After a full pre-flight brief and video screening, you will fly King Richard’s final battle route from The Blue Boar Inn in Leicester via Bow Bridge and out to Bosworth along the Old Roman Road.

Once at Bosworth Heritage Centre, your instructor will orbit the area of the entire battlefield so you will be able to take videos and photos.

Your instructor will point out sites of special importance on the route to help you imagine what the battle would have been like.

On the return leg, your instructor will fly back towards the Bow Bridge and Richard’s final resting place in Leicester Cathedral.

Back at the clubhouse, you will be given a souvenir package of the flight including photographs and a souvenir booklet from the Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre.

Allow 2 hours for this experience. Friends and family may take photos at the aircraft and then watch from the club cafe or balcony which have excellent views over the runways.
