Aviation Without Borders provides humanitarian assistance through aviation services and in the UK we organise and help fund an annual National Fly Kids Day. On a date 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. It is a privilege for the flying clubs and AWB to provide what for most is the chance of a lifetime to experience the freedom of flight and to introduce deserving youngsters to the boundless possibilities it can inspire. The experience can and does change young lives for the better.


The winner will fly in an original, iconic WW2 Spitfire on a fantastic 30 minute flight, at their choice of Spitfire airports across the UK, and will soar 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. Every ticket you buy will not only give you a chance to win this fabulous prize but will also support our National Fly Kids Day and will help deserving children enjoy a flight of their lives.
