£650 + registration fee

Ever wanted to walk on air?

Spend a day with the world famous AeroSuperBatics Wing Walking display team at their home base, RFC Rendcomb Airfield, in the heart of the Cotswolds and have an experience like no other. Prepare for one of the most exhilarating and unforgettable days of your life!

Bring along your friends and family

When you join the AeroSuperBatics team you’ll have a full day ahead. Our passionate, expert team members will welcome you, and your friends and family, to enjoy a day in their company as you prepare for the experience of a lifetime. We’ll also provide refreshments and a light buffet lunch to keep you all going.

When you sign up to Wing Walk we’ll send you a fundraising pack to help you get the most from your fundraising journey, plus we’ll join you on the day to cheer you on from the ground and hand out the cake.

Chocks away!

When it comes to the big moment, one of the team’s professional wing walkers will give you a full safety briefing, before taking you up onto the top wing of a glorious 1940’s Boeing Stearman biplane, and strapping you securely into the harness.

The display pilot will start the engine and before you know it you’ll be in the air waving from the wing during an exciting series of flypasts, zoom climbs, dives and banking turns.

Enjoy the exhilarating feeling of the wind whooshing past as you fly through the skies, taking in a bird’s eye view of the world.

Loop-the-loop

If you have wing walked in the last two years, and you’re feeling brave, you can choose the ultimate roller-coaster ride with an aerobatics flight, including loops, rolls and stall-turns!

Imagine experiencing all this, knowing you’re raising vital funds for RAFA at the same time!
