CoRporate flying days – case studies

We have flown thousands of guests over the years. Let’s hear from them.

The groups we work with range from 4 to 200 guests, and virtually any group size is possible.

Some of the clients we’ve worked with include Breitling, Mazda, Honeywell, Dyson, B&Q and Citi Group.

CITI GROUP

It’s hard to impress seasoned recipients of Corporate Entertainment, but International Investment Bank Citicorp managed it when they brought a group of clients to fly Ultimate High’s simulated air combat profile.

After a day spent chasing each other around the sky the organiser wrote to say “We had a fantastic day, everyone saying it was seamless with no-one bored at all.  Three already want to come back and fly the Extra again – it’s just planes talk this morning, nothing else.  I guarantee you will get other City people coming, it’s going round the market like wildfire this morning.”

“You have the most amazing collection of pilots who are a joy to fly with. I can’t think about anything else this morning”

Breitling

“The aircraft that performed for us were of the highest calibre and the personnel involved were more than hospitable to our guests. Those that were lucky enough to get a flight were made to feel extremely comfortable that they were in good hands, which allowed them to thoroughly enjoy their spin. Those on the ground were of great assistance in helping the schedule run smoothly and were superb hosts.”

“Thank you for a fantastic day”

Mazda

Mazda wanted to make a car launch ‘different and unique’ and asked Ultimate High to fly 30 female journalists from around Europe. Four Ultimate High aircraft were branded with Mazda logos and guests flew a variety of Top Gun pair sorties that were carefully tailored to the individual guests.  The result?  Mazda’s PR Director takes up the story…

“I just wanted to put in writing my thanks for the corporate day that we held with Ultimate High last week. It is not often that we find unique corporate events, usually somebody has ‘done it before’, but flying with Ultimate High was a first for everyone in our group, a true first.  It is a credit to your style of instruction and briefing that even those who were wary the night before were suddenly incredibly enthusiastic before strapping into the aircraft – and the grins when they got back said it all! We could not have chosen a better activity or company for our day and it achieved everything that we set out to achieve – and then some!”

“The grins when they got back said it all”

B&Q

“B&Q puts on around four internal communication events aimed at 2,500 Store staff per year; each is themed according to the season and the message we are trying to get back to the stores.

Last year just a few days before an Event, we were unfortunately let down by one of participants, an Aerobatics display.  Not having time to panic, we starting making calls to replace them.

The first company we called was Ultimate High, who immediately took on the challenge of organising an aerobatics solo display, sorting out the CAA licences within the few days available and putting on a great show, enjoyed by all the delegates. B&Q prides ourselves on our “Can Do spirit” and clearly here was a company that shared the same principles.

With that in mind the next event we organised was themed around Aviation and included a “pairs” aerobatics display each of the four days, combined with a commentary that picked up our themes linking our message with the display. I found the team at Ultimate High to be extremely professional and “happy to help” with whatever we requested. I am certain that we will be working with them in the very near future.”

“I found the team at Ultimate High to be extremely professional and happy to help with whatever we requested”

Dyson

Renowned for their innovative approach, Dyson wanted to make the launch of a new product to their distributors – one that would make a massive impact. They arranged a four day event with Ultimate High where their distributors were flown in from all over Europe to receive training on the new product and to have aerobatic flights in Dyson branded aircraft.  More than 200 people were flown over the event, with attendees receiving airborne footage of their flights and a professional photographer captured the images that summed up the event.  The response from the organisers was as follows…

“With regards to the launch, what can we say except the whole event was simply exceptional!  The response from our customers who attended has been, without exception, truly amazing.  All were ‘blown away’ by the experience. We have been inundated with letters and e-mails following the event and just to give you a flavour…”

“Thank you from Dyson for what was the most superb, professionally run and unforgettable corporate event. Outstanding, when can I fly again?”

Honeywell

International avionics and aerospace giants Honeywell brought the senior members of their European offices together for a series of meetings in the UK and wanted an inspirational flying experience. They arranged to bring their directors to Ultimate High and were delighted with the results.

“The whole day exceeded expectations – I thought the briefing and instruction were excellent and most entertaining.”

“The best flying I have ever experienced!”

The most amazing experience The team at Ultimate High were amazing. The flight was exhilarating with acrobatic manoeuvres that were thrilling. I would highly recommend this and I will definitely be back. The pilot I had on the day was also a pleasure to spend time with.

Mind-blowing experience 10/10 UTTER NUTTER CHALLENGE for my 30th. This was my most insane experience I’ve ever completed, and it most certainly will be a hard one to top. I will never forget the day and I would certainly do it all over again! Big thanks to ‘Greeners’ and his team. You made me feel welcomed and reassured that I was in safe hands from start to finish. This experience topped my expectations and I think this has started to new high for me! Be sure to see me again soon Ultimate High team. Thanks again x

Amazing Space Flight Experience Had an amazing experience today at Ultimate High doing the Space Flight Experience. Our pilot Nick was amazing and made sure I was comfortable the whole time as I was apprehensive beforehand, can't recommend him and the rest of the staff highly enough. We haven't stopped smiling since and will definitely be booking to come back!

Armageddon plus-Apocalypse now. I should have written this review earlier I know but here it is. Got to Goodwood around 9am very quiet before a bank holiday weekend. Firstly thanks to Mark and Jo for making the extra effort as I know they would usually take the weekend off. Took a stroll over to Extra 300,where I was strapped in and then we headed up the airfield to get airborne.After gaining some altitude Greeners performed the most majestic barrel roll I have experienced.I think he might have been a balerina in his former life.With lots of warm up manoeuvre before the actual challenge,which gave you an idea what was coming.Then Mark said are you ready,I said I'm ready.Then things really kicked off,pulling,pushing,tumbling,falling,upside down,negative Gs plus Gs, not forgetting knife edging.This description does not give greeners skills justice. What a fantastic and fun experience this was,by far the best. Keep up the fantastic work at Ultimate High. If you want the experience of a lifetime and therapy thrown in for free,then I cannot rate this highly enough. Thanks again to all the team at the Ultimate High academy,can't wait to fly with you again soon. Kind regards Steve Humphrey.

Wonderful amazing experience Many thanks to all of the Ultimate High team. An amazing unforgettable experience to fly a T67 “Top Gun” aerobatics and formation. My pilot Mags was calm, cool and professional. I felt such an awesome thrill of adrenaline rush that carried me on a high throughout the day. I recommend this experience to everyone who loves planes, or looking to do something special for their birthday. It really is a unforgettable once in a lifetime opportunity. Plus you get a video of the day to brag to your friends and family:)

Top Gun here we come !!! My partner Debra had planned this experience a year previously as a 60th birthday supprise for me, knowing that I had a desire to fly in an aerobatic aircraft again after many years. I also wanted to fly from a historic airfield/aerodrome so Ultimate High's Slingsby Firefly and Goodwood certainly ticked both of those boxes. I was really very excited when we arrived and were greeted by Thea and the team. They really went over and above to make Myself, Debra, our little Jackapoo and a friend of mine welcome with full explanation of what to expect and flight briefings. Very soon I was kitted out in my flying suit and introduced to my Instructor James. With photographs taken we walked out to the aircraft, more photographs and it was time to get strapped in with further instruction on emergency procedures. Then it was time to fly and James talked his way through preflight checks and starting the engine. Take off was very quick and once clear of the aerodrome airspace I was given control as we climbed to altitude heading for Bognor. Once over the sea at Bognor and at safe altitude, James explained that he would demonstrate a manoever and then I would take control and do it again. We completed Wingovers, Loops, Barrell Rolls, Aileron Rolls and Stall Turns. But then it was time to return and I flew the aircraft back towards Goodwood with James pointing out local landmarks. I then handed control back to James who carried out the return to aerodrome controlled airspace and then carried out a very smooth landing. After debriefing and collection of personalised certificate, video and souveniers it was time to say goodbyes, after which my party retired to the adjacent Goodwood cafe for lunch and to watch various aircraft including Spitfires which were also flying on the day. It only remains to say that it really was a great experience and huge thank you to Debra for organising and keeping it all secret for over a year!!, to Thea for making it happen when the weather had been very unhelpful and of course James my instructor, who really was a pleasure to fly with. I think we will be back soon as Debra wants to fly with James now !!! Very best wishes and many thanks to ALL at Ultimate High, From Stephen Debra and Teddie.

Flying Aerobatics with a Red Arrows Pilot Awesome experience. To fly aerobatics and formation with a red arrows pilot is an incredible and unbelievable opportunity, then flying the manoeuvres myself under his calm instruction. Unforgettable, I can't stop grinning! Thanks to all the team at Ultimate High for the most amazing flight.
