ARE YOU AN UTTER NUTTER?!! This flight profile is only for the most extreme individuals on the planet! Flown in the world’s top two-seat certified competition aerobatic aeroplane (the Extra300), with a top air display pilot, you will have the opportunity to experience the massive forces experienced at the very edge of the flight performance envelope!

After a detailed flight and safety briefing, you will be introduced to the effects of controls and aerobatics.

Then – can you handle – THE BIG FIVE EXTREME MANOEUVRES?

1. Cravat
Your introduction to the world of gyroscopics. A vertical twisting manoeuvre so named because it resembles the instructions used to teach people how to do up a bow tie.
2. Inverted loop
The Extra has a symmetrical wing and so everything that can be done the right way up can also be done upside down! For this the aeroplane is rolled upside down in level flight, and then ‘pushed’ at -3G to fly an outside or inverted loop.
3. Ruade
One of the most dramatic of all the gyroscopic figures and used to great effect at Airshows. At high speed, the Extra is pulled up to 45 degrees, rolled onto its side in knife edge flight, and then ‘tumbled tail over nose! Ruade is a French word used to describe the huge kick from the hind leg of a horse.
4. Inverted push-up to Lomcevak
From upside down flight, the Extra is pushed upwards onto the 45degree inverted upline and then ‘kicked’ into a Lomcevak tumble. The name allegedly comes from a Czech word describing the motion of a drunken man!
5. Mulleroid
Invented by World Aerobatic Champion Eric Mueller, this incredibly complex figure starts with a 6G pull to the vertical upline, where an aileron roll to the right is followed by a series of negative flick rolls. As the energy declines and the cone of rotation expands the aircraft is transitioned into a downwards erect flat accelerated spin.


The price is £695 for 1 person or £1,195 for 2 people (save £195).  Bookings for 2 people are flown 1 after the other.

Flights are available on WEEKDAYS ONLY (not weekends).


Flights take place on WEEKDAYS ONLY April-October inclusive, excluding Bank Holidays (subject to weather and airfield conditions).  

Guideline availability can be found in our calendar.


You should expect to be with us for between two and three hours.

You will be kitted out in a high quality military flying suit and then choose your call-sign.

You will be taught how to fly aerobatics (yourself!), and be given a detailed safety brief.

At the aircraft, you will be shown the cockpit controls and receive another safety brief.

The flight

Take-off and get to know the aeroplane: introduction to effects of controls – turning, climbing, descending.

Fly a couple of Aerobatics manoeuvres – yourself.

Then it’s time for the challenge – can you handle THE BIG FIVE EXTREME MANOEUVRES?  These will be flown by your instructor pilot.

Instructor talks through Return to Base.

Time in the aircraft is around 40 minutes (20 minutes in the air).

AFTER Landing

Debrief with your instructor, including amount of G-force pulled and flight certificate.

Write your name on our “Utter Nutter” board of fame – but only if you did all 5 extreme manoeuvres and didn’t chicken out.

Utterly brilliant Utter Nutter experience! I can't recommend the Utter Nutter experience highly enough! I had a stupendous flight with Mark "Greeners", who was brillint and great fun, and had a lovely laugh with Corinne, Thea was so lovely, and great to finally meet Jo, who'd been so patient with all my availability changes! Everyone I met was as nice as could be though, and I couldn't have enjoyed the experience more! I was exceptionally lucky because we still had to burn off some fuel before starting the main aerobatics, so I got to do some flying and then an aileron roll myself as well :D I can't wait to come back for Insanity! Thank you to everyone for an absolutely marvellous morning! Btw everything was indeed explained carefully beforehand, as other reviewers have mentioned, which is great, but I'd be lying if I pretended I was following everything during the flight, being somewhat occupied with trying to stop my knees passing my ears at many points (only a small exaggeration; the forces really are amazing) ;D I was absolutely thrilled from start to finish! Even better than I'd hoped for! If you are worried about feeling queasy, don't be- you have to enthusiastically confirm you're ready for the next figure before flying it, so you could always stop and do something calmer if you needed to :)
Top Gun Flight Experience What a fabulous and exhilarating experience on the Top Gun package for myself and 20 year old son last week. First time ever for us and truly enjoyed our time with Mags and Paddy. Top experience and highly recommended!
Aerobatic flying - fully recommended! Went back to Goodwood to do Ultimate Highs Insanity challenge and it definitely lived up to the name! Professional pilots and staff who always explain what the flight will involve. Hoping to go back for their Armageddon challenge. Highly recommend Ultimate High for the best flying experiences you can have!

10 out of 10! Had an amazing time with the Ultimate High team, it was one hell of an experience flying loops over the south coast on the Top Gun experience! Certainly a day out I'll not forget in a hurry!
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.
