We interviewed Jo to find out more about these incredible flying experiences, and found out a lot of very interesting facts about their planes and celebrity visitors.
Q1: We know that Ultimate High has a very fascinating history behind the planes, could you tell us more about this?
Ultimate High operate 2 different types of aircraft. Our British built Slingsby Fireflies were used by the military as part of the process to train to prepare fighter pilots for the front line. Our flying guests sit side by side with their instructor and the bubble canopy allows fantastic visibility whichever way up the aeroplane is! Our tandem seat Extra 300 aircraft is a two-seat version of the aircraft used in the Red Bull Air Races and is used for public air displays. Celebrities who have flown with us include Guy Martin who learnt how to deal with G-forces for his wall of death world record attempt, the Stig, Reggie Yates, Steve Backshall, Carol Vorderman, Dr Alice Roberts, and we have featured on numerous TV programmes, including Strictly Come Dancing, Coast, Blue Peter and Fifth Gear.
Q2: What differentiates your flying experiences to other competitors?
We use extremely powerful aircraft that enable guests to derive first hand experience of flying on the edge. All of our instructors are ex-military professional instructors who love demonstrating the joys of aerobatic flight. We are the only place in Europe where you can fly simulated air combat in former military aircraft. We have also been awarded the title of “Best Adventure Experience” by the Gadget Show.
Q3: What advice would you give anyone who hasn’t flown before or is a little apprehensive about a flying experience?
Our experienced and considerate instructors always ensure that the flight is tailored specifically to the guest. Some guests choose to fly very gently whilst others are much more adventurous; we make sure that we always deliver exactly the right amount of excitement to each individual.
Q4: In your opinion, what is the best part of your job?
Introducing newcomers to the amazing experience of aerobatic flight and sharing their enjoyment and laughter.
Q5: What type of aerobatic stunts do you do while flying?
Aerobatic manoeuvres flown range from the most simple, such as loops and rolls, anywhere up to the extreme tumbling figures demonstrated at air shows. G-forces can range between +8G and -4G!
Q6: Best Adventure Experience: What three words would you use to describe your flying experiences?
Adrenaline-fuelled, exciting, fun.
