Night a-la Shepherd

We had a great evening with the Sywell Air Scouts and Cubs last week.

The weather was very interesting and contributed to some unforgettable memories and photos…

Learn to Fly the Vampire

You can learn to fly the Vampire subject to T&Cs if you are a private pilot as a minimum.

We will train you using an approved syllabus and you can start with just one flight. The flight suit and helmet will be provided on the day along with an extensive ground school session. The checklists and Pilot’s Notes will be shared with you in advance so you can fully benefit from the training.

Contact us for more details.


Taxi Rides Available

Taxi rides are available in the Vampire.

You will become a part of the team on the day and learn how to start and taxi the Vampire. Being in the cockpit of this first generation jet and hearing the engine spring to life is an experience you will never forget. And of course beautiful photos will only add to it.

Please Contact us for more details and thanks for helping keep the last airworthy Vampire T11 in Europe flying.

New Home Wanted

Due to the very real threat of closure to Coventry airport the Vampire needs a new home.

If you have an airport in mind please get in touch with us using Contact us page.

The Vampire prefers a sealed runway, at least 1000 meters long. In return it will delight you with the characteristic Goblin engine noise and a beautiful silhouette in the sky. We are always happy to show visitors around the aircraft and welcome volunteers.

In Maintenance

Following the trip to Wellesbourne Wings and Wheels event the Vampire went into the maintenance as one of the igniters became unserviceable. Once this is rectified we are hoping to get airborne again this autumn.
