Go sky high for an exhilarating experience and support Wiltshire Air Ambulance!

3rd February 2020, 11:20am | By Jill Crooks |

If you’d like to experience the thrill of flying on the wings of a plane, then why not take part in Wiltshire Air Ambulance’s wing walk?

Wiltshire Air Ambulance celebrates its 30th year of operation in 2020 and the charity is looking for 30 people to take part in a wing walk to raise funds for its lifesaving service.

Taking place on Wednesday 8 July with AeroSuperBatics at RFC Rendcomb Airfield, near Cirencester, participants will be strapped to a Boeing Stearman biplane and experience a series of flypasts, zoom climbs, steep dives and banks.

A wing walk held last year at the same venue raised more than £8,000 for Wiltshire Air Ambulance.

One of those who took part was Meg Steinschauer, an executive assistant at V12 Footwear based in Chippenham.

She said: “It was an incredibly exhilarating experience and seeing my closest friends and family supporting and urging me on was a real boost. I think everyone should give it a go at least once in their life!

“I felt proud to have helped Wiltshire Air Ambulance save more lives.”

Kenresa Stratford, events co-ordinator at Wiltshire Air Ambulance, said: “We’re excited to take to the skies with our wing walk this year and would love to see our supporters take on this thrilling challenge!

“We’ve been flying and saving lives for 30 years and we thought we’d celebrate this great landmark in our history by doing something a little different.

“So if you’re willing to challenge yourself by taking to the skies in our wing walk, please contact us.”

Entry costs £150 and participants are asked to raise a minimum of £500.
