Created on the

The British Aerobatic Association (BAeA) is offering a 50-minute flight experience in a two seat Spitfire (T9) provided by Boultbee Flight Academy together with an overnight stay with dinner for two at Goodwood Hotel as the prize in the first of its newly registered lottery draws.

The lottery tickets for this amazing prize (worth over £4000) cost £20 each and participants will have a 1 in 1000 chance of winning. Proceeds from the lottery will go towards the British Aerobatics’ team (power and glider) training and support fund in preparation for European and World 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.

"This is a great fundraising initiative which invites everyone to be a part of helping our talented British pilots continue competing for individual and team medals at aerobatic championships around the world. Here is your chance to help us provide that little bit of extra support needed to take on the best and bring back a medal,” says Steve Todd, Chairman, BAeA.

This is a unique opportunity to enjoy the sight of the Spitfire's famous elliptical wing passing over England's green and pleasant land, and experience the power, manoeuvrability and grace of this iconic aircraft. The winner will take off from Goodwood Aerodrome.
