Do you want to fly a plane?
The Air Activities team at AJ2019 is offering flights in 2-seater (side-by-side) motorized gliders. Our pilot will handle the take-off and landing, but during the flight you will have the opportunity to take over the controls of the aircraft, and fly it yourself. The pilot will provide instruction on controlling the aircraft during the 20-minute flight. See the Jamboree site from a unique point of view
Ever wanted to do laps of a real racetrack in a real Race car? Join us at The Bend during the Jamboree to get on track as a passenger with our team of highly experienced drivers. All the drivers are CAMS licenced and many have championship trophies to prove how quick they are. So… Helmet on, Harness in, ready? & GO - let's see if we can catch that car in front.
These activities incur an additional cost and have additional waivers. Keep an eye on the website for details!
