Fancy seeing the UK from a completely different perspective – and supporting Action Against Hunger at the same time?
You can thanks to EPOS-based technology experts GS Systems who are donating a great flying experience prize for guests attending Action Against Hunger’s Too Many Critics fundraising event in London this year (5 June 2016).
Guests can bid for the flight during a Live and Silent Auction on the night.
All funds raised on the night will go towards AAH’s work to help provide malnourished children with healthier futures.
Some of the country’s top restaurant critics will experience life on the other side of the pass – donning chef whites to prepare exclusive dishes featuring Peruvian superfood ingredients.
This year’s critics include Bill Knott (The FT’s How to Spend it), Lisa Markwell (Former editor, The Independent on Sunday), Jay Rayner (The Observer) and Rebecca Woollard (Delicious Magazine).
“We attended the Manchester event (where over £19,000 was raised to help people less fortunate than us) and liked it so much that we’re delighted to offer a rather unique prize. You really do get a different perspective of life and the UK looking downwards from a couple of thousand feet,” said Niels Nielsen, GS Systems managing director.
As a guest at Too Many Critics, you can bid for a sixty minute sight-seeing flight for one or two people in a light aircraft from your nearest local airfield in the UK on a date to be arranged and subject to suitable weather conditions. Your host is GS Systems managing director Niels Nielsen, who is an experienced light-aircraft pilot. Alternatively a local flying organisation will take you up into the skies. Niels’ plane is pictured here at Eddsfield – a quiet airfield in East Yorkshire, near Bridlington & Scarborough.
The inside of the light aircraft may appear complicated but it is just like a car dash except you’re operating in three dimensions according to Niels. This picture was taken in Niels’ cockpit 29 miles south of Barton, Manchester.
Forget Gerry and his Ferry across the Mersey …. an aerial view of one of the UK’s most famous and iconic cities with the Liver building and the new museum below is music to our ears.
The Menai Straights with Anglessey on the right.
The Conway estuary in north Wales, the river is 27 miles long, starting on the Migneint moor and discharging in Conway bay.

The pier at Llandudno in Wales. Don’t those beaches look enticing.
There are few more inspiring sights to see than rolling hills and mountains and the sea with the clouds casting scattered shadows on the terrain below. This shot was taken flying over Snowdonia in Wales.
More of wonderful Wales at its most majestic and eye-catching – two mountain lakes near Snowdon. Capturing a scene like this is a truly memorable prize.
An overcrowded island? You can make your own mind up when you take to the skies and have a look at the open fields and countryside of our green and pleasant land. This picture shows the Cheshire plains.
On the other side of the country from Wales and Cheshire, here are the stunning cliffs just outside of Scarborough in Yorkshire. Now you can see why it is called a rugged coastline.
Scarborough town centre as very few people will ever get to see it. Although it could be you if you bid for this auction prize.
