Classic FM presenter Aled Jones will face his fears next month when he takes on a nail-biting wing walk challenge in the skies above Britain – all to raise money for the national charity, Global’s Make Some Noise.

More than 30 years since the release of Walking in the Air, which launched Aled’s multi-million selling career, the song will take on a new meaning when he takes off for his epic flight in September – and Aled has put Classic FM’s listeners in charge of his sky-high adventure. The more money raised for Global’s Make Some Noise, the higher, faster and steeper the pilot will fly.

Created by Global, the media and entertainment group, Global’s Make Some Noise gives a voice and a lifeline to small projects that struggle to be heard. Now in its fifth year, Global has united all its radio brands – Classic FM, Heart, Capital, Smooth, LBC, Radio X, Capital XTRA and Gold – to raise money for disadvantaged youngsters across the UK living with illness, disability or lack of opportunity.

Aled Jones said: “I can be a nervous flyer at the best of times – and that’s when I’m sitting inside the plane.

"To fly at up to 130mph standing on top of the plane is going to be a very different experience, but I’m up for the challenge and I want to be put through my paces. It’s all in aid of a fantastic charity, Global’s Make Some Noise. I’ve seen first-hand the difference they make helping disadvantaged young people, so the challenge will be worth it.”
