Read more

Ready to join us for the challenge of a lifetime in 2020 !!

Would you like to tick a Wing Walk off of your bucket list ?

If so please get in touch with our fundraising coordinator Kim for more information>>>>
info@mitchellsmiracles.co.uk

The wing walking experience is totally FREE providing you can raise a minimum target of £600.00
(This is totally achievable with the help of our fundraising tool kit)

If you are unable to raise this amount, then your challenge cannot go ahead.
Donations will need to be raised 7 days prior to the Wing walk.

Please read on >>>>>

When can I do a wing walk?
We have teamed up with SKYMax and have 2 dates booked out for Mitchell's Miracles,
which are:-
Sunday 19th July 2020 and Sunday 23rd August 2020.

Can my friends and family come to watch my wing walk?
All your friends and family will be more than welcomed to join in the experience, we have a homely cafe on site which serves both hot and cold dishes as well as a large garden area with unrestricted views of your performance.

Is there a weight limit?
There is an upper weight limit of 12st 2lb (77kg). This is an absolute limit that cannot be exceeded and all wing walkers will be weighed prior to briefing.

Is there an age limit?
All wing walkers must be at least 18 years old and a maximum of 65 years old.

What should I wear?
Warm but not bulky clothing (no hoodies or scarves), soft soled flat shoes (plimsolls or trainers) and if you wish gloves. We will provide you with goggles and ear plugs.

Can I wear glasses during the flight?
Yes, all wing walkers will be given goggles to wear during the flight and we have some larger ski goggles which fit comfortably over the top of most frames.

Can I wear contact lenses during the flight?
No, unfortunately even with goggles there is a lot of wind pressure and therefore a risk of contact lenses moving in the eye. We recommend taking contacts out and wearing glasses underneath the goggles provided.

I suffer from travel sickness, will I feel sick during the wing walk?
Travel or motion sickness is often brought on in enclosed spaces where there is a lack of fresh air and disorientation results from a lack of forward visibility. During a wing walk you can see the horizon and there is plenty of fresh air, so people rarely suffer from motion sickness.

How long will the flight last?
The flight lasts approximately 10 minutes from take off to landing.

Will the aeroplane do aerobatics?
No, you will not do loops and rolls, but you will do low dives and sharp turns, so you will have an exhilarating experience! Alternatively, a gentler experience is also available, if preferred

How high does the aeroplane fly?
The aeroplane will fly to a maximum of 700ft and a minimum of 100ft on waving-runs.

How fast does the aeroplane fly?
The aeroplane will fly at between 80mph up to 130mph.

Can I have my wing walk filmed?
Yes, as an option, a video recording of the experience may be purchased on the day for £50. This is recorded on a memory stick from a professional HD camera system which has two camera views with cockpit sound, (click here to watch a sample video).

What if the weather is bad?
The weather is unpredictable in the UK so please call our operational number 48 hours before your flight to confirm the suitability of the weather. If your wing walk is cancelled then please re-book to a date that suits you.

How long will the experience last from arrival to completing my wing walk?
In normal circumstances you will fly within 90 minutes of your pre-arranged safety briefing time-slot.

How do I get on top of the aeroplane?
All wing walkers will need to be able to climb unassisted onto the wing of the aeroplane, which will require a level of flexibility.

Can I communicate with the pilot during the wing walk?
Wing walkers may communicate with the pilot via hand signals during the flight, this will be explained during the safety briefing before your wing walk.
