Location: The Aerodrome, Breighton, Selby, YO8 6DS

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!

This year's Wing Walk for Kirkwood will be taking place on Sunday 7th June 2020 at Breighton Aerodrome, Selby.

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 Kirkwood this year?

In order to take part in the Wing Walk with Kirkwood, we ask you to pay a registration fee of £100 and raise a minimum sponsorship amount of £499. This amount covers the cost of the Wing Walk - and a minimum donation that will come to Kirkwood Hospice.

Please do not be put off by this amount - if you ask everybody you know to sponsor you, you will find you can quite easily raise the minimum sponsorship.

Every extra penny that you raise over the minimum sponsorship amount comes straight to Kirkwood Hospice and will further contribute to providing specialist palliative care to those in Kirklees.

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).

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 557911
