If you fly a Piper, come to Duxford on 24th July and get Bonus Day Discounts.

Duxford is home the Imperial War Museum and must be the premier destination for GA pilots in Europe. Most weekends through the flying season, although there are no guarantees, you are quite likely to see warbirds flying – Spitfire, Hurricane, Mustang, B17, Catalina and other rare types are based at Duxford.

The Bonus days offer great discounted prices: qualifying types of aircraft (or pilots) will enjoy half-price landing fees and much reduced museum admission. Single or twin can land for £7; museum entry is £7 for most adults and children come in free. All Piper aircraft, single or twin, qualify on 24th July.

There’s lots to see, the £25+ million ‘AirSpace’ project, the American Air Museum and four hangars packed with vintage aircraft, many in flying order – really a ‘must-see.’

Don't fly a Piper or can't make the 24th July? Here's the other Bonus Day events for 2010:

August 14: New PPL Flyout and Experience Building Bonus Day - new PPLs make a cross-country flight with an experienced PPL. See separate thread for details and to note your interest:

September 18th: AOPA Bonus Day - for AOPA members and all interested in AOPA. Two presentations from TOP aviation folk; meet AOPA; fun afternoon.

As well as Bonus Days, Duxford welcomes FLY-INs. Any group of pilots planning to visit Duxford can arrange special prices in advance, subject to a minimum of about 6 aircraft (for discounted landing fees) and/or 20 people (for discounted museum admission as well). This does not apply to event days, and it must be pre-arranged with the airfield manager, Frank Marson.

Further information about the Bonus Days and information for fly-in visitors can be found on the web site
http://www.duxford.iwm.org.uk/server/show/nav.1665 and click on the link to Bonus Days (also airfield information link).

The airfield team will be delighted to hear from forumites (call for PPR, briefing and broad slot time 01223 833376) and to see you on the day - call asap as the popular slot times get booked up in advance.

Just for people who don’t know, I should declare my interest. I’m a casual FISO at Duxford. I’m also a pilot who thinks the place is pretty marvellous.
