British Aerobatics is repeating its highly popular raffle for a 45-minute flight in the back seat of a Spitfire.
The flight, provided by Fly a Spitfire, will take place from Biggin Hill. The total value of the prize is worth over £3,900 and just 1,000 tickets will be sold.
Proceeds from the raffle will go towards the British Aerobatic Team training and support fund in preparation for World and European Championships.
British Aerobatics will also make a donation to The Douglas Bader Foundation which works to advance and promote the physical, mental and spiritual welfare of persons who are without one or more limbs, or otherwise physically disabled.
The prize is a 45-minute (minimum 35 minutes airborne) ‘Beachy Head’ flight in the two-seat T9 Spitfire. At the pilot’s discretion, you may take control of the Spitfire.
The prize also includes a free digital video of your flight, a framed flight certificate, a souvenir Flight Patch and the opportunity for photographs by the Spitfire. No person under the age of 16 years is permitted to purchase or sell raffle tickets. The prize recipient must be over 18 years of age. Evidence of age may be required.
David Munn, winner of British Aerobatics’ most recent Spitfire prize draw, said, “The feeling of elation and the powerful sound of the Merlin up close is impossible to explain but, for me, was a dream come true.
“A 300mph turn to position us along the coast with me at the controls doing a wingover, some rolls and the inevitable loop before making our way back to the airfield for the landing.
“It’s everyone’s dream to fly a Spitfire and I can only say what an absolute fabulous experience it was.”
Closing date to buy a £20 ticket is 12 January 2021. Click here for info.
