2 FOR THE AVIATOR
Goodwood: Goodwood is celebrated for its motor racing but this 12,000 acre sporting estate has much more to offer – including exciting flying experiences. These operate from Goodwood Aerodrome, used as a Battle of Britain station during World War II. During the Harvard Warbird Fly & Dining package, for example, you can take to the air in – and even have a go at flying - this iconic 1943 plane, once used for training Spitfire pilots. Afterwards, there's a Champange lunch at The Kennels – former home to the Duke of Richmond's hounds, now a rather smart estate
members' club. Or, for the really keen there's Flying Through the Ages - a full day experiencing three different planes plus a behind-the-scenes tour of the aerodrome and meeting with the aviation teams. At the end of the day, retire to the Goodwood Hotel, with its restaurants, health
club and two golf courses. goodwood.com
