What is wing walking?

 

Wing walking dates as far back as the 1920s and involves walking or moving on the wings of an aeroplane while it’s in flight. Once the reserve of daredevils and stunt performers, it’s now accessible to anyone looking for an adrenaline-fuelled experience like no other.

 

You'll take to the skies on the upper wing of a Stearman biplane to thrill your family and friends with a series of low dives and tight turns at speeds of up to 140mph at 800ft, all safely under the control of an experienced aerobatic pilot.

 

You will be wingwalking at the home of the Breitling Wing Walkers at the private airfield of Rendcomb, Gloucestershire a World War 1 grass airfield set in the heart of the Cotswolds.
