About the experience

When you take off on a Slingsby T67 Firefly from Goodwood Aerodrome, you'll be in for an extreme experience of g-forces that can only be matched by astronauts during space flights. The goal of this flight is to fully immerse you in the g-forces that the T67 is capable of, which are much higher than those experienced during a typical take-off roll of a Boeing 737. While a 737 may generate a g-force of around 0.4 during take-off, the T67 Firefly can reach up to 3g at take-off, giving you an idea of the scale of things. Once in the air, you'll be able to perform aerial manoeuvres that will expose you to serious positive and negative g-forces. The flight is all about speed, angles, and the rate of acceleration or deceleration. It's going to be an intense 30-minute experience that will put your nerves and stomach to the test, but the rewards are amazing, with sensations that are usually reserved for astronauts and cosmonauts.
