About the experience

This is a thrilling opportunity to go wing walking with AeroSuperBatics in Gloucestershire! AeroSuperBatics has been operating the world's only aerobatic wing walking display team since 1987 and has performed at numerous airshows as the Crunchie Flying Circus, the Guinot Wingwalkers, the Utterly Butterly Barnstormers, and the Breitling Wingwalkers. It's an experience that requires nerves of steel and a head for heights, but once you overcome your initial fears, you will love it! You'll head to AeroSuperBatic's home base at ex-WW1 Rendcomb Aerodrome in the Cotswolds, where all the pilots are the current display team pilots, and your coach will be a fully trained, professional wing walker. The AeroSuperBatics safety briefing takes place in a fully restored Officer's Mess building dating back to 1916, where the World War 1 RAF pilots would assemble before taking off on their training sorties. Once you're strapped in and airborne, you can look down at your friends and family below and give them a wave as your pilot performs flypasts, zoom climbs, steep dives, and even banked turns – just like the AeroSuperBatics professionals! It's an experience you'll never forget!
