Owner description: High quality flight training, ATO registered (GBR.ATO.0326) Flying School in Salisbury, Wiltshire. As well as Tiger Moth Experience Flights in our WWI bi-plane! GoFly itself continues a well established tradition of flying training from Old Sarum which has existed since the Airfield's creation in the First World War. Old Sarum has a good track record of producing very competent private pilots, and this is a tradition we are proud to continue. Whether your intention is to learn to fly simply for fun, or to fulfill a lifelong ambition (whatever your age!), we think you'll struggle to find a better combination of location and atmosphere, together with a flying school which prides itself on safe, high quality tuition.

Could not have asked for more. Had an unforgettable experience incredibly well organised by the staff at Gofly. I will be back again soon! Couldn't recommend it enough.

Right from the off let me say the pitfalls of flying in a 75 year old aircrafy are basically our rubbishy British weather.
I have waited from the end of last year until March of this year to finally fly in the mighty Tigermoth.
The guys from GoFly are consummate professionals & know their stuff incredibly well. After what looked like an iffy morning they rang at 11am to confirm that were a go to fly. Also its well worth remembering these guys had had to postpone the Saturday because of weather & were kind enough to rebook us on the Sunday.
We arrived with kids, dog & wife. There is a cafe so everyone is catered for. The amount of skydivers the day we were there it was like a conveyor belt wow incredible.
Tom's a real credit to GoFly. We were introduced to our pilot Barney when we arrived, after a quick brief we were off. There were 3 of us, I was up 2nd. Both Tom & Barney help you into the aircraft as you have to be careful were you stand on on such a vintage aircraft. Basically you get 20 minutes flying & when I say flying you will have the opportunity to fly the aircraft if you so wish. What a dream come true absolutely loved it, would do it again tomorrow in a heartbeat.
We went to approximately 1400ft & did a quick tour of Stonehenge & Salisbury. The light wasn't fantastic but the flight more than made up for this. Thank you Tom, Barney for a day all of us won't forget in a hurry, will probably be talking about this day for a very long time too come.
If its on your bucket list just do it you won't regret it. 10/10

Following a couple of false starts due to weather we were booked in ... what an amazing experience. Exciting, exhilarating and slightly scary. Thoroughly recommend !

Well worth the wait (got cancelled for safety reasons due to poor weather a few times!) but once up in the sky, this was FANTASTIC. Felt like a real Biggles, fun in the sky like no other... flew over Stonehenge, the Regimental Badges, did a few dives and steep banks that were superb. Recommend the video too - shows plane from the side so you can see all the landscape as well as yourself.

If you're going to have a flight in a 75 year old bi-plane you've got to be prepared for a few hiccups before you finally get airborne - you need the right weather (high cloud, low wind - not the other way round), a serviceable aircraft, a skilled pilot - but when it all comes together it's exhilarating, memorable and worth every penny. I enjoyed a 30 minute flight in a Tiger Moth that took in Stonehenge, Old Sarum and Salisbury and included a spell in charge of the joy-stick - the best 60th birthday present I could have wished for.
