We have taken the decision to postpone the summer Airshow set to take place over the weekend 29th/30th of July, this decision has not been taken lightly and has been based on a number of factors but we feel it is better to make an early decision than stage an unsuccessful (and potentially expensive) event.
Despite taking steps to ensure that the date didn’t conflict with other events in the model flying calendar when we first set the date, it has since transpired that the date clashes with the established Willis Warbirds event which a number of display pilots and traders were already committed to.
A further deciding factor has been the progress and seeding of the main runway. As reported previously we have suffered a number of delays on this aspect and despite the fact that this work is now complete and the seed is growing well, it is still uncertain whether the surface will be fully usable for a large event by the end of July.
We are currently evaluating alternative dates for the show so please keep a look out for further updates.
Thank you to those pilots, traders and spectators who did book in and we look forward to seeing you at the rescheduled event.
