About the experience

Now, this is an experience of a lifetime, something you will never forget! Standing on a wing - yes you read correctly and flying through the air, may have you questioning your decisions and leave your stomach in knots, but the view and adrenaline rush is something out of this world. This amazing experience will see you learning the skill of wing walking at Leeds East Airport, the former RAF Church Fenton base which is situated between Leeds and York. You will be airborne on a plane at speeds of up to 135mph whilst strapped to the wing of a biplane, so you will need to be taught a number of different things before you take off. One of the first things you learn will be hand signals. Due to the height and speed, this makes it difficult to talk, so hand signals are at high importance when it comes to communicating with the pilot. You will then go through exactly what you can expect whilst you are wing walking in the skies above Yorkshire.

  • Go wing walking at Leeds East Airport
  • Fly on the top wing of a Boeing Stearman biplane
  • Show off your skills in your own wing walking display
  • Invite up to 30 of your friends and family to come and watch

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.
