Wing Walk Challenge

4 September 2019

Event information

  • 4 September, 2019
    9:00 am - 6:00 pm

How do you fancy taking on the challenge of a Wingwalk?

Flown by one of the Aerosuperbatics Wingwalking display pilots, you will take to the skies on the top wing of one of our Boeing Stearman biplanes and experience an exciting series of flypasts, zoom climbs, steep dives and banks in front of the family and friends you bring along on the day.

Before you taxi across their beautiful airfield ready for take-off you can expect to be overwhelmed with excitement from the roar of the 450hp engine and the propeller in front of you hitting speeds of 760mph. Your adrenaline will hit new heights as the aircraft builds momentum for lift off!  Feel the sense of freedom as you fly through the air, taking in the stunning views surrounding our airfield, whilst waving to friends and family down below.

Get ready for the ride of your life! Last year our very first Wing Walkers raised over £21,000 for Dorothy House and enjoyed an experience of a lifetime!

The next Wing Walk Challenge will take place on Wednesday 4th September 2019 at RFC Rendcomb Airfield, The Whiteway, Cirencester, Gloucestershire, GL7 7DF .
