Once again Aviation Without Borders has taken off with our very popular annual ‘FLY IN A SPITFIRE’ raffle on 1stJune 2018. For the cost of a £2 ticket you have the chance to fly in an original, iconic WW2 Spitfire on a fantastic 30 minute flight while soaring over our ‘green and pleasant land’ to the roar of a Rolls Royce Merlin engine. In safe flight and with the approval of the pilot the winner may handle the controls and fly the aircraft.
All proceeds go to supporting our National Fly Kids Day. In June each year many hundreds of deserving children throughout the country are invited to a local aerodrome for the day, are given a talk on flying and a tour of the airport and are taken on a short flight. A trip in a small aeroplane is a great way to share the fantastic excitement of flying and to help expand the children’s horizons. The experience can and does change young lives for the better. Please help us keep the kids flying by supporting our raffle.
The raffle will close on the 31stOctober 2018 and the winner will be announced on the day of the draw at the London Heathrow Hilton T4 on Saturday 10thNovember. The winner will fly at a time and place of their choice, depending on availability, during the Spitfire’s summer flying period of March to October 2019.
Buying a ticket is a great way to support our National Fly Kids Day. Good luck!
