Great North Fly In 2011

Postby nickstone » Thu Mar 24, 2011 11:14 pm

Following the success of last years event the 'GREAT NORTH FLY IN', will take place at Eshott Airfield, Northumberland on the weekend of 25th/26th June 2011.
The event will include Microlights, Light Aircraft, Autogyros, Paramotors and Powered Hang-gliders. Both LAA and BMAA are most welcome.
The event is designed to appeal to everyone who has an interest in aviation.
The concept is to meet the needs of all aviators hopefully getting bigger and better this year, flyers of whatever aircraft most welcome to attend the event, and to have a lot of fun.

We hope to have a variety of interesting aircraft large and small

All profits will go to the "HELP FOR HEROES" charity. Last year we raised over
£2,000 on the day for this well deserving charity.

Storm Smith (Eshott Airfield Owner) has kindly offered a no landing fee for the
weekend and we hope to raise some money for our charity supporting our
servicemen and women wounded/maimed and disfigured on operations in Iraq and

Attractions will include the following;
• Beer tent Bar and BBQ
• Military Vehicles

• Live Music
• Display Aircraft
• BBMF Spitfire and Hurricane
• Cockpit Displays
• RAF Eshott Historical Display
• Raffle/Auction
• Camping
• Fuel runs available (Mogas)

This is a great opportunity to visit one of the most beautiful counties in
England, steeped in history and with one of the most impressive coastlines
boasting a multitude of castles, Holy Island and of course our very own Roman
Wall. Bring your tents, stay the night and have a great time!!!
