BOULTBEE FLIGHT ACADEMY

Established in 2011 the Boultbee Flight Academy was, and remains to this day, the only recognised Spitfire flight school in the world. The Academy initially offered training only to pilots, but in 2015 became the first organisation ever to be granted permission to carry passengers in two-seat Spitfires.

Still owned by its founders, both keen aviators and adventurers, the school now flies some 500+ non-pilots per year from their HQ at Goodwood Aerodrome in West Sussex. They have expanded operations to take in new locations across the UK and recently completed the only 100% real-cockpit, surround vision Spitfire simulator in the world.

The combination of simulator, training school and flight experience operation will help to secure not only the future of the iconic Spitfire but of those who fly it. At Boultbee a growing family of pilots share their wealth of experience in flying these beautiful machines, ensuring that operations conducted on 1930s aircraft can be done to the safety levels demanded in the C.21st aviation industry.
