The team at Spirit in the Sky are dedicated in getting as many people as possible close to classic aviation. Throughout the Spring and Summer months we undertake wing walking and pleasure flights for thrill seeking individuals looking to tick the bucket list, or those looking to raise money for charity. We work alongside the UK’s only CAA certified wing walking provider to ensure safety is of the highest standard.
The aircraft used is the 300hp Boeing Stearman bi-plane originally built in 1942. The aircraft has been the subject of a recent ground up restoration and is exactly as it came out of the factory except for some minor avionic upgrades.
Our wing-walking experiences take place just east of London, UK, at Damyns Hall Airfield:
Having booked your wing walking experience you will be given a date and time to attend. Of course you are welcome to bring friends and family to witness your high flying feats. Refreshments are available on site. On arrival you will be briefed on the flight and on specific safety elements. You will also need to sign a fitness statement and a waiver before being shown out to the aircraft and strapped on to the wing walking harness where you will get a birds eye view of the world for 10 minutes. Your flights will include low passes past your friends and family on the ground at speeds of up to 120 mph.
The wing walking experience costs £435.00 per person. For an additional costs of £50 we can include a high definition recording of your flight shot from 2 different angles on the aircraft. This film includes pilot commentary outlining height, speed and general pilot comments. This is paid in advance or on the day. In addition you will also be presented with a certificate in order to prove that actually flew on the wing of a classic biplane. If you are undertaking a wing walk for a charity please do let us know in advance. We try to run specific charity days for our intrepid wing walkers!
In addition to our wing walking experience we are also able to provide classic aircraft pleasure flights in aircraft such as the Tiger Moth, Boeing Stearman, Dragon Rapide, Spitfire and the Mustang. These flights can be undertaken at a number of locations throughout the UK so please contact us for more information.
