Wing Walk Experience

When is it? 2020 dates available upon request. 

Where is it? Cirencester, Gloucestershire. 

What is it? Experience the thrill of a wing walking ride from a private aerodrome. Normally, you would fly inside the plane rather than actually on it, but Wing Walking involves you being securely strapped whilst stood on the wings of a bi-plane as it takes to the skies for a 10-minute flight, at speeds of up to 130mph!

How much does it cost? We ask that you raise a minimum of £1,000 to take part in this event. This covers the cost of the challenge (£435) and raises an additional £565 towards Brake's life-saving work. There is a £50 registration fee payable at the time of booking, but this can be recouped once you have raised your minimum target.
