December 10 2010.

For anyone wanting to experience the adrenaline rush of airborne speed, a new text competition could be right up your street.

The RAF Association is offering the chance to win a day with World Superbike rider Leon Haslam, following the launch of a competition at the NEC's Motorcycle Live Show, held recently.

Not only will the lucky winner get the chance to spend the day with Leon but they will share with him the experience of an aerobatic flight with the UK's premier civilian aerobatic team - The Blades.

Throughout 2010, The Blades performed their jaw-dropping displays at air shows across the UK, proudly displaying the RAF Association and Wings Appeal livery.

The Blades are made up of former Red Arrows pilots and have flown over 300 displays in front of more than 18 million people over the last three years.

As well as the flight, the winner will have an opportunity to fly a helicopter and take a front row seat as The Blades perform a private air display for their guests - the perfect way to end a perfect day!

Anyone who wants to be in with a chance to win can now enter the competition by texting the word WINGS to 70007. This will give one entry into the draw for a flight in a Blades aerobatic aircraft.

Your support will cost £2 per text, plus your standard network message charge, with at least £1.54 from each donation going to the RAF Association, depending on your network operator.
