Barry's Flying Circus

General information 
Barry’s Flying Circus is an annual TONIC fundraiser founded by Tonic Patron and daredevil Barry Ashworth (Dub Pistols). It takes place at ‘AeroSuperBatics’ in Cirencester.


Once lined up the pilot will throttle up the engine,  release the brakes and you’re off! The propellor biting  into the air, the tips travelling faster than the speed of  sound, your friends and family will hear the bark of the  propellor as you accelerate across the grass. Your  adrenaline levels will go off the scale as the aircraft  quickly gathers speed on it’s take off run, just a few  seconds later you will feel the wheels leave the ground. 
Feel the tremendous sense of freedom as you fly through  the air, take in the unbelievably stunning views  surrounding the private airfield, whilst waving to friends  and family on the ground below. 


1.Types of Wingwalking available 

  • 1.1 Standard ‘First Time’ Wingwalk - First time wingwalkers cannot do aerobatics, but your adrenaline will hit new levels with this incredible flying experience. You will fly on the top wing of one a classic 1940’s Boeing Stearman biplane across the airfield and local area, passing over the wonderful countryside that surrounds the airfield. Then you'll past the viewing enclosure so that your friends and family can watch you, can take photos and video you flying past!

  • 1.2 Loop the Loop Wingwalk - For those who have already  performed the Standard ‘First Time’ Wingwalking  Experience, you qualify for the advanced Loop the  Loop Wingwalk. This mind blowing wingwalk provides  the adrenaline rush a Professional Team thrive for during their performances. This is one of the most  extreme things you will ever do in your life. 

  • 1.3 Formation Wingwalk - Share your experience with a  breathtaking formation wingwalk. On the top wing of  your respective aircraft, you will both take to the  skies in a simultaneous and spectacular performance  you’ll never forget.
