Have you got the legs to go for a wing walk in the UK?
Normally you fly inside a plane rather than actually on it but if you go wing walking you will be physically standing on the wings waving at your friends and family watching from below and revelling in the complete triumph of your wing walking feat.
Our wing walks take place at three different UK airfields. All are highly specialised in training people up to be able to walk on the wing of a biplane within a very short time. And despite how daring it all looks, the UK has very strict rules for wing walkers and it is very safe. For example, the harnesses used are completely bespoke, meet strict criteria and hold you nice and steady in position on the wings.
So, all the ingredients are there, with some of the UK's most experienced pilots in the cockpit, all the latest safety gear and the aircraft ready to go. The only question now is, are you ready for it? We think the chance to join a very elite set of people in the UK who can call themselves wing walkers is a real thrill.
Oh and in case you were wondering how noisy or blustery it is up there on the wings, we can tell you you will be completely open to the elements and the whistling of the wind means you can't hear the pilot underneath you, so you'll have to learn the essential wing walkers code of hand signals before take off!
Yes, wing walking is that sort of experience. Really only for the daredevils amongst you, it is a thoroughly exhilarating activity that is like nothing you will have ever done before. This flying experience isn't offered in the UK at many places, due to the specialist equipment and skills needed, but if you're prepared to travel, we think it'll be totally worth it as you get ready to walk the wings with your heart in your mouth ready for the ride of your life.
