Wing Walk

Come and join the hospital charity for a once in a lifetime experience, where you can step towards the ultimate daredevil thrill – the wing walk!

Your adrenaline will hit new levels with this incredible flying experience.  Flown by one of our top class professional wingwalking display pilots, you will fly on the top wing of one of our fleet of five classic 1940’s Boeing Stearman biplanes.

You will be guided by our professional wingwalking team up on to the top wing. Once strapped in, you are ready to go!

The huge 3m propellor starts to turn and the big Pratt and Whitney radial engine rumbles into life. As you taxi across our beautiful, private airfield ready for take-off, you will be overwhelmed with excitement from the roar of the 450hp engine and the propeller right in front of you.With you standing on the wing, your pilot will fly you across the airfield and local area, passing over the wonderful countryside that surrounds us. He’ll then fly past the viewing enclosure so that your friends and family can watch you, can take photos and video you flying past, after all, it’s not every day you get to fly on the top wing of an aeroplane!

The wing walks take place at The Ops Room, RFC Rendcomb Airfield, The Whiteway, Cirencester, Gloucestershire, GL7 7DF
