Calling all high fliers

Birmingham Press Club is holding a ‘special’ event for a limited number of members on 14 July at Wellesbourne Airfield, near Stratford upon Avon.

The event starts at 6.30pm and will finish at dusk.

Tickets cost £40 + VAT per person, which includes a fish and chip supper – and the opportunity to fly over the beautiful Stratford and Warwickshire countryside where they will be able to film stunning aerial views to show off to their friends.

After the flight, being held in association with Take Flight Aviation, you will be able to see a small collection of Iconic Classic Cars.

This event is being offered on a ‘first come basis’ and once tickets have been sold your chance to fly in a light aircraft and do some ‘once in a lifetime’ aerial videoing will be lost.

Not everyone will want to film their trip – but why not just come along for the flight and enjoy the experience?

If you want to reserve your ticket please contact us at – using the subject heading Flying Fish and Chips, we will contact you to arrange payment and confirm your booking.

Take Flight Aviation, which provides flying lessons, training and light aircraft hire, has been based at Wellesbourne for over ten years and now also operates out of London Oxford Airport. It has a fleet of more than a dozen aircraft, which undergo stringent maintenance checks after every 50 hours of flying time.
