Overview

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! 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.

Visit the Compton Abbas Aerodrome on the beautiful Dorset/Wiltshire border. This impressive airfield, just a couple of miles outside of Shaftesbury, is quite unusual in that it is the highest airfield in the UK! If you want stunning views, then the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a great place to get them.

Now, whilst this area is absolutely incredible, it’s not the biggest rush you’re going to experience on your day out on the wings! The friendly and professional staff will have you ready and raring to enjoy your wing walking in a safe and fun way, with a full safety briefing and lots of tips on how to make the most out of your flight.

Then it’s time to “wing it” in the best way, with a roaring crowd watching on, as you climb, dive and hold on tight during your adrenaline pumping stint on the top wing of the Stearman.

This isn’t for the faint of heart, it’s for the adventurers, and for those that want to live life to the fullest! The ultimate fly by, strapped in, sky high, excitable and wide-eyed!
