About Vintage Airways

Vintage Airways is a unique joy flight operator based out of Lilydale Airport, on the edge of Victoria’s stunning Yarra Valley. Located less than an hour from the Melbourne CBD, Vintage Airways strive to recreate the glorious days of the 1930s with adventure flights in a fully restored de Havilland DH-82 Tiger Moth.

Founded in 2012, Vintage Airways has quickly become Australia’s leading pleasure flight specialist, offering customers the chance to step back in time and experience the joy of flight as it was at the turn of the 20th century. Enjoy stunning, panoramic views of Melbourne as you soar over Port Philip Bay, the City Square and the world famous Melbourne Cricket Ground. Take a gulp of fresh air whilst the spectacular forests and wineries of the Yarra Valley unfold beneath you.

An adventure flight in a Vintage Airways Tiger Moth is among life’s most incredible experiences. On the day of your flight you’ll be fitted out with vintage flying gear, including a leather jacket, helmet, goggles and a scarf, before climbing aboard our fully restored de Havilland Tiger Moth. Whilst in the air, you will be given the opportunity to take control of the aircraft yourself, a spectacular experience that is only offered by select few Australian flight operators.

The team at Vintage Airways is headed up by veteran pilot Jeremy Hurley. With more than seventeen years of aviation experience, Jeremy and his team have a genuine passion and enthusiasm for the early era of flight. Comprised of pilots with an impressive range of experience and knowledge, the Vintage Airways crew are the perfect companions on your Tiger Moth experience.

If, once you’ve returned to earth, you can’t wait to take to the sky again, Vintage Airways can help you along the road to becoming a qualified Tiger Moth pilot. The only company in Victoria with a craft that is available for hire to qualified pilots, Vintage Airways can take you from zero experience right through to fully certified pilot.
