Wing Walk

Imagine the wind in your hair and adrenaline coursing through your body as you climb higher and higher, strapped to the roof of a plane! Imagine the sheer rush of excitement as you take on one of the world's most fearsome challenges!

COVID-19 update:

Following the recent Government announcement about the UK's roadmap to easing lockdown restrictions over the coming months, our Wing Walk event - due to take place on Sunday 11th April - has now been postponed until Sunday 25th April. Following the latest guidance, we believe that moving the event is the best thing to do, with a realistic chance that it will go ahead. If you have signed up to take part in our Wing Walk this April, a member of our Fundraising team will be in touch to discuss your options.

 

Wing Walk

Strapped to the wing of a plane, you'll complete a variety of exhilirating fly pasts and manouvers - the highlight being a dive from 500ft and a zoom climb, with a final RUN and BRAKE before landing!

If this sounds like your idea of a great time, why not take to the skies for The Kirkwood this year?

 

Sign up

It's easy to sign up online. Simply click the Sign up button on this page, or click here to access our online registration form.

Please note: minimum age is 18 and no upper age limit subject to health (if you're 65 or over, we'll ask you for a doctor's note to show you're medically fit). Maximum weight: 12st 2lbs. Participants must be physically fit enough to climb up to the aircraft to the top wing (approx 10ft).

 

Registration Fees

Entry Fee: £125

When you sign up, we'll also ask you to raise a minimum of £499 in sponsorship for The Kirkwood. This amount covers the cost of the Wing Walk - and a minimum donation that will come to The Kirkwood. Please do not be put off by this amount - if you ask everybody you know to sponsor you, you might find it easier than you think to raise. Our friendly Fundraising team will also be available to offer helpful advice to support your fundraising efforts. Every extra penny that you raise over the minimum sponsorship amount comes straight to The Kirkwood - so you'll be directly helping to care for anyone affected by a life limiting illness in your local community.

If you are over the weight limit, why not consider an Adrenaline Flight? You'll sit in the front seat of a beautiful vintage Boeing Stearman biplane and complete an exciting Loop-the-Loop! If you're interested in the Adrenaline Flight, please contact Joanna Doherty on: 01484 557 911.
