You will be strapped onto the outside wing of a plane. You take off for a 10 minute ultimate experience that will include zooms and climbs.

About this Event

Before your flight the team will provide a comprehensive ground and safety briefing when you will need to sign a fitness/waiver declaration. Once strapped into the 5 point harness you will take off for a 10 minute ultimate experience that will include zooms and climbs at speeds up to 130mph and passes near to friends and family.

With 2 high resolution cameras fitted to the aircraft it is possible to record your flight. The recording includes cockpit and engine sounds and is edited then returned to you by post within 28 days in DVD format. The cost of this lasting reminder of your flight is £50 and can be paid for on the day. After your flight you will receive a certificate confirming you have participated in a wing walk.
