Iron Maiden‘s Bruce Dickinson loves to fly, and the musician is looking for a co-pilot (if you have the money to spend) for his upcoming world record flight simulation attempt.

The singer-pilot is raising funds for Aerobility’s plans for a disable-adapted flight simulator that will prove invaluable for disabled student pilots to learn how to fly through all sorts of conditions.

The challenge at hand for Aerobility is to make the simulator “pay for Itself” through sponsored circumnavigation, with stops at “real” destinations over a 22,000 mile course that would be plotted out through Aerobiliity’s real training aircraft.

Dickinson is one of 100 pilots who will fly a leg during the global journey, which will run from Oct. 5 through approximately Oct. 15. During his portion of the trek, Dickinson has offered the highest bidder the opportunity to be his co-pilot for the record-setting run. Those interested can bid via the U.K. eBay website, and at last check the highest bid was £1,950 (approximately $3163).

The Aerobility simulation flight will kick off Oct. 5 at Blackbushe Airport in the Canberley U.K. headquarters building. For more information, check the Aerobility website.
