Pilots from Bristol & Wessex Aeroplane Club will be flying around the entire United Kingdom in 24 hours in aid of Above & Beyond.

The simulated flight will be conducted in the club's Redbird Flight Simulator covering 19 sectors lasting just over an hour each, starting from Bristol Airport and flying anti-clockwise around the entire UK.

The club decided to do something positive for charity after a challenging year and using the simulator to avoid delays due to bad weather.

Due to start on Wednesday 16 December at 12pm and finish on Thursday 17 December at 12pm, the challenge will involve continuous flying apart from landing to refuel and refreshment breaks to keep things realistic.

The flight will cover over 1,600 miles crossing parts of the North Sea and Irish Sea on its routing.
