What Can I Expect

Wing Walking from Damyns Hall aerodrome - it's EXCLUSIVE to Into The Blue! Experience the utter thrill of flying strapped on to the top wing of a vintage Boeing Stearman biplane at this private aerodrome near London.

Damyn's Hall is Greater London's most accessible airfield, just 10-minutes' drive from junctions 29 and 31 of the M25 by the QE2 bridge in Essex. Coming by public transport from central London is really easy too, as Upminster tube and rail station is five minutes' away.

Damyn's Hall is also a pretty special place. Everyone based at this airfield is totally passionate about flying. The couple who run this wing walking school have created a fantastic business, ensuring you are able to wing walk in total safety and within all the CAA guidelines.

Reassuringly calm and patient, the pilot and ground crew teams will encourage you every step of the way in your quest to walk on that Stearman wing. By the time you're up there, we're pretty sure you'll be waving, smiling and whooping your way through your entire flight.

You'll certainly be the star of the skies, as you're welcome to invite friends and family to Damyns to watch the spectacle of you wing walking.  

Before you get airborne, you'll practice the moves and techniques to become a wing walker on a ground-based training session. This includes learning all about hand signals, using the rig and the harness set up on the wing.

Once attached onto the wing for your walk, you're ready for your intense 10 minute flight in front of your gathered friends. You'll be wowing the expectant crowd with low-level fly pasts from varying angles of approach, taking a thrilling dive and braving a zoom-climb manoeuvre before finishing your wing walk with a run and break finale - all at speeds of up to 135mph, with you standing on the top wing!

Very happy with my wing walk experience, something I had wanted to do for years. As a very mature walker I was concerned about getting onto the wing but with help and encouragement I made it. It was quite blustery but with a beautiful clear day I could see for miles. I never once felt frightened as Richard the pilot was so reassuring and confident in his manner I would happily do it again.

It was truly amazing. I just wish I'd been more relaxed up there. The staff were absolutely great and really tried to put me at ease. The only negative for me was because the force of the wind was so strong in my face, I did struggle to breathe, so maybe wear a roll neck so it can be pulled over your nose. I'm really glad I did it and would certainly recommend.
