Following the success of last years event the 'GREAT NORTH FLY IN', will take place at Eshott Airfield, Northumberland on the weekend of 19th/20th June 2010. 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 go bigger and better this year and is to get as many flyers of whatever aircraft 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 £1,700 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 troops wounded/maimed and disfigured on operations in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Attractions will include the following; Beer tent Bar and BBQ Military Vehicles Vintage Cars Live Music Spitfire and Messerschmitt 109 Cockpit Simulators Cockpit Displays RAF Eshott Historical Display Raffle/Auction Camping Fuel runs available (Mogas) Avgas - available on-site Paramotors can take off from Stanton Airstrip (6 Miles southwest of Eshott), we should be able to take your tents over to Eshott by vehicle if required etc. This is a great opportunity to visit "The Kingdom of Northumbria" 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!!! Further details from Chester on tel no 07941368902 or Nick on 07981305501.
