What’s the challenge?

Spend a day with the world famous AeroSuperBatics Wing Walking display team at their home base, RFC Rendcomb Airfield, in the heart of the Cotswolds and have an experience like no other. Prepare for one of the most exhilarating and unforgettable days of your life!

When you join the AeroSuperBatics team you’ll have a full day ahead. With a welcome from the expert team, you will be briefed and prepare for the experience of a lifetime.

Chocks away!

When it comes to the big moment, one of the team’s professional wing walkers will take you up onto the top wing of a glorious 1940’s Boeing Stearman biplane, and strap you securely into the harness.

The display pilot will start the engine and before you know it you’ll be in the air waving from the wing during an exhilarating series of flypasts, zoom climbs, dives and banking turns.

Additionally, if you join us for year two, or have wing walked in the last two years, and you’re feeling brave, you can choose the ultimate roller-coaster ride with an aerobatics flight, including loops, rolls and stall-turns!

Wing walk your way to sponsorship; we ask participants to raise a minimum fundraising target of £650 + registration fee to support the RAF Association. We are the charity that supports the RAF community. We believe we have a duty to those who have served our country so bravely. That’s why we’re here to offer friendship, advice and support whenever someone needs it.
