Great North Fly-In

Post by nickstone » Sun Jul 12, 2009 9:40 am


First ever 'GREAT NORTH FLY IN', will take place at Eshott Airfield on the weekend of 22nd/23rd of August 2009. The event will include Microlights/ LAA/Giros and Paramotors if it can fly you are welcome.

Airfield details can be found on:

The concept is to get as many flyers of whatever aircraft to attend the event, and to have a lot of fun, especially in the Beer tent! All profits will go to our chosen charity "HELP FOR HEROES".

The airfied owner Storm Smith has kindly offered a no landing fee weekend and we hope to raise some money for our charity supporting our troops wounded/maimed and disfigured on operations in both Iraq and Afghanistan.

Come and sample some true Northumbrian hospitality and crack,We will have a bar selling the finest Northumbrian Ales.

Attractions to include the following;

Beer tent Bar and BBQ
Live Music
Parachute Display tbc
Aerobatic Display tbc
Aerial Games tbc
Free Camping next to your aircraft
Fuel by arrangement (Avgas or Mogas)
Definately no Karaoke!
Good Crack!

Lets get back to what fly-ins should be "FUN"
