A total of six seats are available for sponsorship on each flight-four in the Lancaster and one each in the escorting fighter aircraft. The price is $3,000 (CDN) for each seat (in a fighter or aboard the Lancaster) which helps them to cover the costs of maintenance and operational consumables like fuel and oil. And for the real fans, the P-51 and P-40 fighter flights may be extended, at the sponsor’s option, ofcourse for an additional fee. Also note that you first need to become a member of Vintage Wings of Canada or Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum for an annual membership of $125 (CDN).
