And the Caribbean offers an unbeatable collection of simply breathtaking landings.”

Otherwise, the cost is £190,000 for a group of 4, or £48,000 per person.
“As an unashamed AvGeek myself, this is truly the trip of a lifetime for those with a passion for aviation,” Twidell said. “Combining flights in the world’s most desirable private jet, with some of the world’s most spectacular landings. What could be better?”
