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
