Wingwalk

Date: 18 September 2019

Location: Cirencester

Minimum fundraising target - £650 + registration

This is your opportunity to experience the unique thrill of wingwalking.

Join the world famous AeroSuperBatics Wing Walking display team at their home base, RFC Rendcomb Airfield, in the heart of the Cotswolds.

With their passion and unrivalled expertise in Wing Walking, the AeroSuperBatics team will provide you with one of the most amazing, exhilarating and unforgettable experiences of your life!

On the day, one of the team’s professional wingwalkers will take you through a full safety briefing, before guiding you up onto the top wing of a glorious 1940’s Boeing Stearman biplane.

The display pilot will start the engine and take to the skies with you strapped securely into the harness, waving from the wing during an exciting series of flypasts, zoom climbs, dives and banking turns.

Each intrepid wingwalker can bring up to 4 family members or guests to cheer them on and we will provide a light buffet lunch and refreshments on the day.

“The best thing I have ever done in my life” Claire Bond
