Take to the skies, alongside a friend, relative or partner as you sit between the wings of our classic 1940s Boeing Stearman Biplanes on one of our “Wing Seats”.
Gaze at the beautiful scenery below and across at your fellow flyer, reaching speeds of over 100mph and heights up to 1000ft; soaring over the stunning Cotswold countryside, with zoom climbs and steep dives for the more adventurous!
First pioneered by our Professional Display Team in 1989, this has never before been offered to the public. Together, you will become amongst the first people in the world to experience flight as “Wing Sitters”!
Bookings for our innovative “Wing Seat Experience For Two” are available for one week only, commencing 15th July 2024.
PLEASE NOTE: Terms and Conditions apply. All “Wingsitters” must weigh no more than 12 stone* and be no taller than 6ft 2. All bookings must be made by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 01285 831774.
Once lined up the pilot will throttle up the engine, release the brakes and you’re off! The propellor biting into the air, the tips travelling faster than the speed of sound, your friends and family will hear the bark of the propellor as you accelerate across the grass. Your adrenaline levels will go off the scale as the aircraft quickly gathers speed on it’s take off run, just a few seconds later you will feel the wheels leave the ground.
Feel the tremendous sense of freedom as you fly through the air, take in the unbelievably stunning views surrounding our private airfield, whilst waving to friends and family on the ground below.
After a few passes for friends and family, the aircraft can climb higher, up to 600ft. Height is potential energy, the higher you go the more the aircraft can do. Here are the exhilarating manoeuvres we can perform, these moves are designed to give you a taster of what aerobatics is like. If you enjoy flying on the wing whilst doing such manoeuvres then you really must consider a full on aerobatic wingwalking experience for your next flight.
Let’s start with ‘the bumps’, effectively it is straight line flight, it doesn’t involve any turning. This can be a gentle manoeuvre or it can a little more extreme. The pilot will push the nose down, you will be momentarily weightless, the aircraft will quickly accelerate, reaching speeds of up to 140mph. It’s fast!, the pilot eases the stick back, G comes on, for some it’s a new experience, feeling the various different forces acting on your body. The nose rises and the aircraft is climbing steeply, it’s slowing down, in seconds you are 2/3rds as high as the Shard. At the apex, the pilot pushes forwards on the stick, ‘bunting’ the aircraft forward and down, at this point you are totally weightless, your feet will feel very light on the wing, almost coming off but you’re strapped in so securely that you’re not going anywhere except downwards, towards the earth. Speed rapidly builds, the aircraft easily accelerating downhill before the pilot eases the plane back into a climb to repeat the move.
The pilot will combine ‘bumps’ with a steep turn, using up to 90 degrees of roll. As the aircraft heads skywards the pilot will apply roll in the required direction and the aircraft will turn through an angle of between 90 and 180 degrees, the nose dropping and regaining speed as it does so.
Are you ready to take up this new exciting experience?
Whilst you and your partner take to the skies on the wings of the biplane, a spectacular viewing experience is created for those watching from the ground. The sight of two brave individuals fearlessly manoeuvring will captivate your guests – an experience that will be long-remembered by all involved.
Wingseating is unique to AeroSuperBatics and is an activity that few people have had the chance to experience, let alone with a partner simultaneously on the same plane.
The feeling of the wind hitting you as you fly through the sky on top of a beautiful biplane is insane.
If you want a unique adventure I would highly recommend wingwalking with AeroSuperBatics.
10/10 would recommend everyone needs to give wingwalking a try at some point in their lives.
