It is a condition of CAA approval that you are made fully aware that Wing Walking carries a higher risk than a normal commercial flight (e.g when you fly on holiday) . The operator of these experiences will brief you clearly on the risks that have been identified and how they have been mitigated to make the experiences as safe as possible. You will receive an in depth briefing on the day of your flight and have the opportunity to ask any questions before signing a disclaimer, confirmation of briefing and risk acceptance.

What Can I Expect

This is your chance to become a wing walker for the day! Treat the adventurer in your life to an intensive training session in preparation to then walk the wing on a thrilling flight out of Chiltern Park Aerodrome situated between Oxford and Reading.

This wing walk display really is one of those 'once in a lifetime' experiences that is guaranteed to get the adrenaline flowing as you climb up onto the wing of the biplane for this unique aerial ride. Why walk on land when you can walk on the wing?

The ultimate aim of this day is to turn you from budding top-wing riders into proficient wing walkers, capable of taking part in a 10-minute aerial display.

We're guessing this is the first time you'll have attempted a wing walk, so the experience starts with a full safety briefing on the ground. You might not be expecting this, but as well as the usual safety procedures, it will include things like breathing techniques and hand signals, all very much specific to the art of being a wing walker.

The wing walking team at Chiltern Park has had the special wing rig manufactured 'made to measure' for the Boeing Stearman plane you'll be flying on. Once you, the budding wing walk star, has climbed up onto the top wing, which is about 10ft off the ground, you'll be strapped in with a super-secure five point harness.

When comfortable and after one last run through of what you need to do, you'll be taxiing off ready for the personal wing walk air display of your life. /As you feel the wind in your face, you'll be flying at speeds of up to 135mph and it's at this point that you can officially declare yourself as a wing walker. Most wing walkers are so exhilarated in flight that they can't help grinning madly and waving at friends and family below.

Keep your wits about you as you zoom in for a fly past at just 500ft off the ground and pull up for a sharp climb before heading into the finale - a classic manoeuvre, the 'run and break'. One thing's for sure, you're not going to forget the day you became a fully-fledged wing walker!
