Team Building for Everyone

High Flying Teams integrates fun with practical team building challenges and learning that can be applied immediately in the workplace. The day(s) mix physical and non-physical activities in a way that lets everyone demonstrate and develop their strengths. Teams succeed through collaboration, planning and communication, and gain confidence in their individual and collective abilities.

Anyone who has ever tried to put on a team building activity will know the risk of leaving people excluded: our activities are non-cheesy, diverse, voluntary and require a team to draw on individual spatial and organisational strengths as well as brawn.

Team Development meets Personal Development

  • The excitement of defying gravity, with only the sound of the air moving around you is something everybody should experience.
  • The intensity of team bonds created by working together to achieve a common goal of launching people into the sky defies description.
  • As an activity – whether in the air or on the ground – there is something for everyone, regardless of strength, fitness or age.
  • Few other activities combine such accessibility with exhilaration, independence with teamwork, or safety-consciousness with inspiration.
  • Make a break from traditional team-building activities, try something really unusual and motivate your team to unlock their inner eagles!

About Us

Soaring Ambitions is run by keen glider pilots Katharine and Paul with personal experience of the team development, team-building and personal growth opportunities presented on an airfield. Combine gliding knowledge with over 20 years’ experience working for SMEs, family businesses, charitable projects and blue chip companies, and you’ll find we understand what you are looking for in off-site leadership and team development.

Our passion for gliding spills over into work encouraging teenagers into engineering and aviation, offering them simplified versions of High Flying Teams, such as The Wright Stuff and High Flying Girls. The chance to get hands on with a glider is great for building confidence and demonstrating team work skills.
