Face your fear of heights and take on a Wing Walk!

Take on the ultimate challenge for your local hospices and stand on the wing of a bi-plane as it circles and flies through the sky with our Wing Walk!

Wing Walking is an innovative and exciting way to fundraise for Naomi House & Jacksplace, to celebrate a special occasion, to face your fear or heights, or to purchase something unique for a loved one!

The event is hosted by The Wing Walk Company, the modern day equivalent of the Barnstorming Pioneers, who would've travelled the country in the 20’s and 30’s as part of a flying circus, bringing aviation based activities to your local area. The Wing Walk Company Display Pilots and Ground Crew have a real passion for aviation and are on hand to pass on their knowledge and enthusiasm to you.

Tickets

Prices are £99 per person.

Your entry fee only covers the cost of your participation, so we ask each walker to kindly aim to raise £550 sponsorship to help make a difference and contribute towards the invaluable work of the hospices.
