Frequently Asked Questions & Price

 How much will a display cost?

It depends on the distance from Duxford or the previous display site. A local display will be a minimum of £1,500 and, for example, if it is 60 miles from Duxford the cost would be around £2,500. VAT will be added these figures.

 Is it appropriate for a wedding?

The display can be a ‘surprise’ and can start within a few seconds of an agreed time. Without exception, all the displays we have flown at weddings have been a resounding success.

 How long does a display last?

Between 7 and 12 minutes, tailored to your requirements.

 What's special about 434?

Perhaps the most famous of all Spitfires still flying today, MH434 was built in 1943 at Vickers, Castle Bromwich. This Spitfire is completely original, and has never been fully rebuilt. A delight to fly, the aircraft is beautifully responsive and extremely manoeuvrable.

MH434 is an icon of aviation and airshow history.

 What is so special about an OFMC display?

We provide the best aerobatic display flown by well known, competition winning, pilots who keep the aircraft in view and safely near to the spectators.

Our pilots are authorised to fly to the highest CAA standard for formation and solo aerobatic displays and the result is unique and highly regarded. The displays are always exciting and safe.

 What is a suitable location for a display?

To give permission for a display, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) require a clear area of land for the display to be flown over, and this should be near to the spectators. Countryside, farmland, water & woodland are all suitable and minor roads can be flown over. Built-up and populated areas have to be avoided.

 What is an unsuitable location?

Areas surrounded by buildings and people cannot be flown over, so the centres of towns are not suitable.
