25th March 8pm UK time. 

A  bit of a special and sad flight this week.

This is a recreation of the final flight by the Lynx Helicopter in UK Service.


The Flight was undertaken by 4  HMA8 Lynx on Friday 17th March 2017. This was the retirement of the final  "Classic" lynx from UK Service. They have now been replaced by Wildcats.


As we do not have the HMA8 version available yet ( we are working on it though ), this event will be open to any of the 3 Lynx variants available in our Current "Classic" lynx package found here:-




No other aircraft are permitted  for  this flight. The Lynx package has had a minor update for this flight.


The real flight took around 5 hours to complete. As we will be pushing the Lynx much harder and have less stops I do hope to get   as far round the route as possible in our 2 hour flight slot. It will be  a sharp departure at 8pm. if you are late you will need to catch up.  ( note to  people on the wrong side of the pond,  the UK Daylight savings dose not start until the day after this flight ).
