Take to the skies and push your courage to the throttle strapped to the top of an authentic 1940s Boeing Stearman biplane!

We are offering a limited number of lucky supporters the once in a lifetime challenge of taking on a wing walk in aid of our two hospitals on Saturday 9 July. You'll lift off from Damyns Hall Aerodrome in Essex, before reaching speeds of 135mph, at a height varying between 100 and 700 feet!

After your flight, you will be presented with your flight certificate and your optional souvenir flight video to remember a truly remarkable and wonderful experience.

As part of your sign up there is a minimum fundraising target of £700 that you will need to raise in order to take part – We will be with you every step of the way through your fundraising journey with lots of helpful tips and advice to help you achieve this.

Every wing walker will receive their very own Charity t-shirt along with fundraising pack, as well as one-to-one advice and support from sign up to event day.

Where will my money go?

There are a variety of appeals for you to choose from, check them out here.

Anything else I need to know?

  • You must weigh no more than 85kg. The weight limit is a hard rule as every wing walker will be weighed on the day
  • You must be at least 18 years old to take part in the Wing Walk
  • You must be under 6'2 to ensure the shoulder harness fits correctly
  • Wing walkers over the age of 65, will require a Doctor's signature confirming your fitness to participate. You can download the medical form here
  • Wing walkers must be capable of climbing up on to the top wing to be strapped into the wing-walking harness. You will need enough strength in your legs, and mobility to climb, and at one point, kneel to reach the Rig positioned on the upper wing.
