Wing Walk Challenge

Wing Walk Challenge

We’re looking for the bravest and brightest to take part in the new SHA Wing Walk Challenge. Travel down to Yorkshire to take on the wing walk challenge.

Stand on the wing of a 1940’s Boeing Stearman Biplane flown by a highly qualified pilot. Complete a variety of flypasts and manoeuvres with the highlight being a dive from 500ft and a zoom climb with a final “Run and Break” before landing.


We asked last years participant Anne Kelly for a quote and she said, “Absolutely…Amazingly…AWESOME!!!” Need we say more? 

This is definitely a challenge for the bravest of fundraisers! If this sounds like you get in touch with or fill in the form at the bottom of this page!


The minimum fundraising target for this event is £999. To register you need to pay a deposit of £99 (scroll down to register) which will contribute to your fundraising target. You will then be expected to raise a further £900.

You will be supported in your fundraising by an SHA Fundraising Officer and various materials including a Fundraising Welcome Pack and sponsorship forms. There are lots of resources available here.

If there is anything else you need your fundraising officer will help you.
