Full day air tours of WW2 battlefields

Departing from the iconic Goodwood Aerodrome

Enjoy our tailor-made, full day tours by private airplane over the D-Day invasion beaches in France. Having transferred to coaches our ground tours explore the key sites of the Normandy battlefield accompanied by our experienced guide Colonel Mike Bradley OBE.

What is included in your unforgettable battleground tour?

Depart from Goodwood (itself a wartime airfield) in West Sussex (1 hour south of London Heathrow & Gatwick airports) and fly a similar route that fighters would have flown to the invasion beachheads in Normandy, then embark in a west-to-east transit along the shores of Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword beaches.

After our one hour flight we land at Carpiquet airport near Caen, Normandy, from where you are transported to various locations relevant to the D-Day landings. These locations are tailored to suit your own requirements and appropriate to either British/Commonwealth or US citizens.

A particular favourite is a visit to the Pegasus Bridge Café Gondreé, still owned and run by Madame Arlette Gondreé who was just four when they became the first French family to be liberated on June 6, 1944. The Café has since become a pilgrimage for veterans and their families. Other locations include some of the beaches themselves, defensive battery sites and War Cemeteries, and as mentioned vary according to your own wishes.
