Overview

Pure exhilaration, maximum levels of adrenaline and an excitement overload – this is the daredevil activity of wing walking!

Be strapped in a standing position to the top of a Boeing Stearman biplane, while it courses through the air at speeds of up to 130mph.

The rush of wing walking puts rollercoasters to shame. The anticipation while waiting to take off, and the completely unique sensation of lifting off the ground while on top of a plane, is a buzz that anyone will get a kick out of! Looking straight out at open air as you fly through the sky, really is something to behold.

An incredible gift for the daredevil in your life, and for those that want to experience everything they can and conquer all of their fears! If you’re going to go walking, why not go wing walking!

Head on over to the Headcorn Aerodrome near Ashford in Kent, for your wild, wing-tastic ride! The garden of England is a superb area to fly around, while strapped to the top wing of a plane. This is a real bucket list visit, at one of the busiest airfields in the south east.

Feel the rush of the wind making your cheeks wobble and the tingle of the hairs on your arms standing on end, as you complete fly by after fly by for your adoring fans down at ground level!

Your adrenaline levels will be pumping higher and higher as each trick gets more and more exciting, while your expert pilot puts you through your wing walking paces!

You can bring up to 50 friends with you to watch your big performance, to come along with you on your ride of a lifetime.

To commemorate your outstanding day in Kent, you’ll be given a personalised wing walking certificate to treasure for all time.

Walk on sunshine in the beautiful garden of England!
