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.


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”


“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 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 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.”

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?”


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!”

apocalypse Arrived as usual with a relaxed and friendly reception. Thank you Jo and Thea. After the briefing we made our way to the Airfield with Thea and some bloke called Greeners.(only joking Mark).Took off for the warm up bearing in mind this was my forth real challenge. From the very start i new this was going to be the most extreme. I tried a roll(i have control)i think i stalled the engine. Then i was asked to try a left flick, which i did and thought it was ok.Then Greeners took control and said this is how you do a flick,Wow.Then after that an impressive but majestic barrel roll. Bearing in mind were still in the warm up. As things progressed in the challenge things really kicked off barrel rolls, the roulade, the cravat,the + Gs,the - Gs wow you could feel that. All the time Greeners is telling you what's going on and a bit of singing thrown in.(its not as bad as you think).Then the finale, the windmill followed by the inverted spin not necessary in that order. Utterly Utterly incredible. Thanks again to all the team hope to see you soon. All the best Steve Humphrey.

Awesome experience! Loved it so much the first time had to go and do it again! Fantastic day from start to finish, I flew with Steve 'Jos' Johnson who made sure I got the most out of my day... I flew some loops & barrel rolls and he then demonstrated some slightly more complicated manoeuvres! Absolutely amazing experience. Will be back, this time for the Extra 300 I think......

Ultimate High insanity flight Just flew insanity with the team at ultimate high. What a fantastic experience. All the staff are professional and friendly, make you feel at ease from start to finish. So this is an invitation flight for successfully completing utter nutter. Wow, insanity is the correct name. Greeners take you on a roller coaster ride of high g aerobatics,that honestly should not be possible. A full airshow routine, non stop adrenaline. Honestly, I can't recommend, as its not for everyone but if you want a next level buzz, you've got to try it. I managed to complete this and now look forward to my invitation the "the big one" the windmill manoeuvre was totally epic and not like anything I've ever done. Wow! Thanks greeners and thanks to the whole team for making my day an unforgettable experience. See you soon

I flew a plane! Such an experience. I GOT TO FLY A PLANE! Don't get me wrong, I can still feel my breakfast coming up and it's 5pm, but well worth the "after effects". Getting to actually take the controls takes this kind of experience to a whole different level. The team were also great. Shout out to Jonesy our pilot.
Top Gun - Amazing! Wow… where do I start? Just about coming down from my Top Gun experience this morning. Andy my pilot was just superb, guiding us through each stage of flight, explaining what was going on. Between the close formation flying, simulated dog fight (even better than I imagined) and aerobatic maneuvers, it is hard to say what the highlight was. Ultimate High folks are so professional, well organized and most of all safety focused. Would not hesitate in flying with them again even with “someone” singing ???? Thanks guys!
(Ultimate) High Way to The Danger Zone ???? Wow, what an incredible experience! Mark "Greeners" Greenfield and the entire team at UH were so hospitable, friendly, and knowledgeable. They can make any beginner feel at ease about flying! Here is what happened on the day: 1. Fill out a quick health assessment 2. Select your flight suit and call sign 3. Sit through a basic safety briefing 4. Walk out to the plane and strap on your harness and parachute 5. Fly for roughly 25 minutes During the flight itself, your instructor will show you the basic moves, and you simply follow them when you're ready to do so. Your experience is completely dependent on how much of a thrill seeker you are. In my case, I went up to 5gs of force and still wanted more! In between moves, Mark and I were casually talking about the experience and having a great laugh along the way. A throughly enjoyable couple of hours, and a friend made in Mark. Highly recommended and would definitely do it again!
BEST "HIGH" NO DRUGS REQUIRED!! Utter Nutter - 60th birthday present to self.....boy, did it exceed expectations!! An experience that surpassed anything previously. If you desire a simultaneous rush of fear and terror coupled with an intoxication of awe and exhilaration, don your flight suit and parachute and jump into the cockpit!! Pilot, Mark G is aptly named as the G's are incredible. What a pilot and what a professional team at Ultimate High and the welcome and hospitability you receive is equal to the flying experience. If you have even an inkling, don't procrastinate, just do it.

WOW, WOW, WOW!! WOW, WOW, WOW!! The most incredible once in a lifetime experience with the most amazing, skilled pilots you could ever sit alongside of. It's not everyday you get the opportunity to fly a plane next to a Fighter Jet pilot, Red Arrows pilot & Virgin Atlantic pilot... We were in complete awe! Huge special thanks to 'JOS' & Rich for making our experience so memorable in every way. An experience we will remember for a lifetime and with our own video footage to keep forever! Thank you so much to the team!!. A 30th birthday we will definitely never forget!! #The Ultimate Top Gun Experience. Paul & Hayley (06/06/23).

Book it! Amazing experience! Me and my husband booked for his 30th birthday. I think everyone should do this once in their lifetime. Exhilarating and fun - the pilots are relaxed, knowledgeable and fun to be around and the manoeuvres experienced in the air are incredible. Highly recommend!!
