Pedal Planes


For all those youngsters aged up to about 5 or 6 years old, we have a number of pedal planes fro them to enjoy, and you may see one of the 3x YES pedal planes (2x Tiger Moths and a Spitfire) or you may see one of the large fleets of the Joystick Clubs array (Spitfire, Hurricane, Piper Cub, Mustang, Me108, Harvard);

“Green aviation – “pedal power” at Brooklands”

“New pilots ground training at Brooklands – no aerobatics possible”

fifteen planes

Where: Brooklands Museum

What: A Record Breaking Day

When: Sunday 21st September 2015

How: Did you miss it ?

London saw a “flypast” of a Hurricane and Spitfires to mark 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain on Sunday, but Brooklands Museum saw a “pedal past” that we believe to be a world record.

The Joystick Club from White Waltham arrived and positioned their Seven pedal planes.

Brooklands Museum were the next with their Four Planes, close behind them were the team from Stow Maries Aerodrome with their Two planes and YES providing the tail end with their Two “tigers”.

Fifteen Pedal planes – All in one place – it must be record breaking!!

To finish the gathering the fifteen pedal planes with their very young volunteer pilots then

took part in a circular Pedal past!

This means that the mass pedal past bar has been raised really high now. Will 2017 year beat this new record?.
