About the experience

Have a bucket list space left and not sure what to fill it with? Well this Wing Walking Experience in Kent is the perfect adrenaline filled experience to fill that gap, it’s a no brainer! You will be learning the art of walking on the wing of a Boeing Stearman biplane at Headcorn Aerodrome, one of the busiest general aviation airfields in the south east. Formerly known as RAF Lashenden, Headcorn is the hub for all things entertainment and aerial. With the chance to scare yourself silly and create a memory to last a lifetime, a wing walk is the perfect bucket list addition. The ground team will conduct a briefing which will include safety details, instructions on how to get in and out of the harness on the plane as well as teach you hand signals so you can communicate with the pilot. Before you know it you will be up in the sky soaring over the Kent countryside. So what are you waiting for? Book yourself or a loved one in for an experience of a lifetime!
