A little Aerobatics event in Leicestershire.

Here's a heads-up on something interesting from another local Herts car club - but in Leicestershire...Shout Rgds, Dikko.


 

Now that The British Aerobatic Association competition year is opening up, I wondered if any members might want an excuse to drive somewhere different and watch a different motorsport: POWERED AIRCRAFT AEROBATICS.

 

We have a two-day event at Leicester Airfield on the 21st and 22nd May. Entry is free, there is a restaurant, a bar and lots of petrol heads and aeroplane fanatics to be found gazing at the skies. What’s more I will be the Contest Director!

 

For more information on this event and others throughout the year go to: www.aerobatics.org.uk or if you want to chat about it you can call me on 07977 586205. The competition itself will cover aerobatic pilots from beginners to advanced. There would only be one higher level after that: Unlimited, which is a bit like making it into Formula 1. This competition covers the Roy Legg and Duxford Trophies.

 

What it is all about is referenced on the website. We are working with new CAA guidelines on distancing from the crowd line, but you will have good visibility and some great photo opportunities plus the chance to talk to some of the pilots and take a look around the aircraft. These events are very much governed by the weather, which we only really know about on the day.

 

Let me know by email if you fancy going (phil@oldbeach.com).

Kind regards,

Phil Massetti

Vice Chairman, The British Aerobatic Association

Phil, tried sending you an email but got error message returned from server and unable to deliver?

Interested in the event and seen the website with links to event timing, do you have a bit more of a breakdown of the timings for the different classes, when break for lunch etc.

Thanks
