Public Airshows and Private Displays

Old Flying Machine Company has a significant and unmatched record of air display flying that stretches back over 30 years, and as a result we are well known to deliver the very best air displays. The company’s focus is primarily the display of these aircraft for private and public events. Our unique event management is handled by Laura Bonhomme who looks after the flying displays from initial contact right through to completion with an outstanding level of service. We are also able to offer a Display Directing service which includes all liaison with the Civil Aviation Authority, site appraisal and risk assessment.

Regular events include the Goodwood Revival, Arundel Festival, Stanley Hall Private Party, Silverstone Race Track and Biggin Hill Air Fair. 

The aircraft displays can feature solo exhibitions, dogfights, battle attack sequences and superb formation flying. Displays can be provided from a single exhibition to an entire show, bringing in additional aircraft where required.

Some of the most experienced display pilots in the world fly with the Old Flying Machine Company, offering a cross section of skills and expertise second to none.

The aircraft displays carry on the company’s tradition of showing the aircraft in their original roles, a fitting tribute to Ray and Mark Hanna, much-missed founders of the company.
