AeroSuperBatics Wingwalkers are recruiting for a new member of the tea,

The Gloucestershire-based display team perform at more than 80 events each year throughout Europe and beyond, and have also displayed in Japan, India, Dubai, Australia and China.

A spokesperson said, “This is an exciting, yet challenging role, as the art of wingwalking involves climbing around an aircraft in flight and performing gymnastic moves on the wing as they loop above thousands of spectators looking up in awe.

“This unique job involves travelling and performing all over the world and assisting with events and club days at their private airfield as well as various other duties at the onsite.

“An enthusiastic, hard-working team player is sought for this amazing role. A background in dance and fitness is ideal to perform against the immense wind pressure experienced when flying at speeds of up to 130mph, as is the ability to continue smiling at the crowd when it starts raining!

“The successful candidate will receive full training in the art of wingwalking, so no previous wingwalking experience is required.”

The successful candidate must be between 4ft and 5ft 4ins tall, weigh no more than 8½ stone, have a dance background and be comfortable appearing on camera.
