Group Wing Walking Day

21st August 2016

Group Wing Walking Day

Admin fee £45

Pledge to raise £1,000

Are you a thrill-seeker searching for the next thrill?  … Then look no further! …

Take part in our group wing walk day at Leicester Airport, tick it off your list and raise funds for St Richard’s Hospice at the same time.  Once strapped into the 5 point harness you will take off for a 10 minute ultimate experience that will include zooms and climbs at speeds of up to 130mph and passes near to your cheering and waving friends and family.

You will be with the team for a maximum of 90 minutes, but you are welcome to stay at the airfield and enjoy the atmosphere for the day.  Before your flight we provide a comprehensive ground and safety briefing when you will need to sign a fitness/waiver declaration.

As an optional extra cost of £50 you can have a recording as a lasting reminder of your flight. Taken from 2 high resolution cameras fitted to the aircraft the 2 picture split screen recording includes Pilot commentary, airspeed and altitude. This is supplied on a USB memory stick and is available for you to take away. This can be paid for in advance or on the day if you wish. You will also receive a certificate confirming you have participated in a wing walk.

Please note that to wing walk you must be no heavier than 12 stone 2 pounds (77kg) and between 18-65 years of age. You can wing walk between 65-75 years of age but you would need a GP’s declaration of good health.

On the day, dependant on the temperature it is recommended that you wear T shirt/ fleece/wind jacket. Light trousers, jeans or leggings. Trainers or light weight shoes. No hoodies, boots or heels. More comprehensive information will be supplied when you receive the airfield arrival details nearer the time of your flight from Aerobatic Tactics.

Aerobatic Tactics adheres to strict regulations introduced by the Civil Aviation Authority in October 2013 to provide wing walking experiences to the general public including fundraising activities. Our professional team of pilots and ground crew undergo regular training and meet stringent operational requirements to ensure that your experience is safe, legal and enjoyable to allow you to complete your wing walk for charity with ultimate peace of mind.

To register your interest, please contact Jodi Brandwood on 01905 763963 or jbrandwood@strichards.org.uk

Please book by 15th May 2016 to avoid disappointment.  Full fundraising support will be provided and you will have up to 4 weeks after the wing walk to collect in your sponsorship.
