A second chance to win a flight in a Spitfire
Due to popular demand British Aerobatics is delighted to announce its second lottery draw to win a flight in a Spitfire. This once in a lifetime opportunity includes a 50-minute flight experience in a two seat Spitfire (T9) with Boultbee Flight Academy and an overnight stay with dinner for two at Goodwood Hotel.
As one winner comes back down to earth after their flight in a Spitfire, British Aerobatics is ready to make another dream come true. For just £20 a ticket, participants in the next lottery draw will have the same 1 in 1000 chance of winning a flight in a Spitfire (prize worth over £5000). Alan Begley from the West Midlands, winner of the first lottery draw, shares his experience;
“It was a privilege to be given the opportunity to fly in such an iconic piece of British history. From the briefing and first roar of the Merlin engine right through to the flight, aerobatics and landing, the whole experience was exhilarating. It was simply one of the most exciting and memorable things I have ever done!”
Proceeds from the lottery will go towards British Aerobatic Team training and support fund in preparation for the upcoming World and European Championships. A donation will also be made to the registered charity Aerobility, who facilitate a range of flying training and flying experiences for disabled people.
