St Barnabas House Wing Walk

What is a wing walk?

A wing walk is an exhilarating adventure where you're safely attached to the front a biplane and taken up into the skies. You'll have a full safety briefing before hand, and get to meet the pilots who'll be taking you up. There's also viewing areas for friends and families to come and cheer you on. You'll be in the skies for a full 10 minutes of pure airborne freedom!

For the very adventurous there's also the option to take a thrill seeking loop the loop wing walk. You'll need to have done a wing walk before taking on this daring feat - but you have the option to book the normal wing walk and loop the loop all in one day if you're just a beginner.

How it works: 

  • Wing Walks run between April and October. So you’ll be able to select a date that suits you best!
  • There’s several wing walks to choose from at different airfields across the South. Browse here to find the perfect Wing Walk for you.
  • Once you’ve selected the one for you – you’ll need to choose between different fundraising options (fundraising or self-funded).
  • Choose ‘St Barnabas House’ when you select a charity from the drop down list
  • Let us know when you’re booked in and we’ll send you a fundraising pack and can help you fundraise as much as possible.

“It feels like there’s nothing between you and the ground, But you know you're in safe hands and I would recommend it to anyone. I’d say just go for it. Just do something outside your comfort zone and make a difference.”

- Sonja, 2023 Wing Walker in memory of her parents
