Cambridge Flying Group
Cambridge Flying Group was founded by former members of Cambridge based RAF 22 Reserve Flying School in 1953. Today the group operates two de Havilland DH82a Tiger Moth aircraft throughout the year at Cambridge International Airport.
The Cambridge Flying Group offers a rare opportunity to anyone, whether experienced or just starting, to enjoy classic flying in a way that few can. It has built a remarkable hands-on approach that has grown from its roots as a voluntary organisation.
For those interested in seeking out the real spirit of flying, and wanting to tackle the challenge of flying vintage aviation icons, joining the Cambridge Flying Group gives access to a unique community of aviators and aircraft. Much more than a school, members have unparalleled access to the Group’s aircraft and the extraordinary experience and knowledge of the members.

DH82a Tiger Moth
Fuji FA200 - Not Tiger Moth
The group operates two de Havilland DH82a Tiger Moth aircraft.
G-AOEI is the oldest. Built by de Havilland at their Hatfield factory in1939 this aircraft served with RAF No 81 Squadron in France during 1940 as returning to England just before the Dunkirk evacuation.
G-AHIZ is newer, built by Morris Motors at their Cowley factory in 1944. While built to a military contract it has always operated as a civilian aircraft.
Both are painted in the attractive yellow and silver livery of the former London Aero Club. From a distance the only distinguishing feature is the fuel tank - yellow on EI and silver on IZ.
Both aircraft are powered by Gipsy Major 1C engines.
Both aircraft have modern radios and Mode S transponders with ADS-B Out.
The aircraft cruises at 80mph and has an endurance of about 2.5 hours.
A Fuji FA-200 owned by several group members is available to all members for instrument training and gaining familiarity with modern aircraft, subject to being added to the aircraft insurance policy. The Fuji has full instrumentation and a constant speed propeller. It is also aerobatic. When the group takes the Tiger Moths away from Cambridge the Fuji often accompanies them as a support aircraft.
