Exciting news for you all.... some of you may know that my other passion is flying planes.  Well I realised a few weeks back that our K.I.S.S Rally this year at Squires is only a couple of miles from Sherburn airport!
So, I thought what a good idea it would be to hire a stunt/aerobatics plane for our biking friends at BM who may want to try out another awesome lifetime experience!

Ok that’s a little advanced, but we’re welcome to do some basic stunt flying (loops, barrel rolls, etc).
As I’ll be busy all weekend with K.I.S.S I contacted a flying examiner who I know, also a biker who’ll be attending the rally, and he’s offered to hire a stunt plane for the whole day (11:00-18:00) on Saturday (12 Sept) to take any of our rally attendees up for a short spin.
However, we need to know ASAP who is interested so we can organise a schedule.  The price will be approximately £90 for 40 minutes which is more than enough time to try out all the basic manoeuvres.
Due to the small number of slots available, it’ll be a first-come first-served basis.  A deposit will be required in advance to reserve your flight.   These flights require a basic level of fitness of course, so if you have a history of health problems such as heart attacks please think twice before putting your name down.

So come on guys.... you can't all be chicken!  PS: no stunts are necessary, you can just fly the plane as any other plane.
And the idea is also that you fly yourself, you have control!

I was thinking about having a competition for those stupid errr brave enough to go up. We will make a list of the number of loops rolls what ever there called and the best show of the day will get there evening meal and a couple of pints payed for. There could be an trophy or something for best pilot or loudest scream and a wall of shame for anybody that come's back crying.

yea we have the plane booked on the saturday.

I will go early in the morning and try it out myself, never done aerobatics before.

Then we have the plane until 18:00.

If there's not much interest by Wednesday then we'll have to cancel it :-(
