Calling all thrillseekers!

New for 2021 we are excited to announce a Wing Walk! Taking place on September 9th, you will feel the rush of flying at speeds of up to 135mpg while standing on the outside of a plane!

  • Have a waist measurement, whilst wearing warm clothing and a jacket that is 40” or less
  • Are able to climb, completely unassisted, up to and down from the top wing of one of our Boeing Stearman biplanes. This is a steep climb of approximately 10ft / 3m, but you will be given full guidance by our Professional Wingwalker.
