VANS RV Fly-In 9 Sep 2017
As usual, while it's aimed at VANS aircraft, all-comers are welcome, whatever aircraft they are flying.
Please ask to taxy to B Hangar after landing where there will be plenty of food and drink to be had from 10:00 to 17:00.
We'd love to see lots of VANS but doubt they'll arrive like this!
49 VANS aircraft in formation on Oct 13 2013 over Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City USA
Unless otherwise noted LFA events take place at B Hangar so ask for taxi to there after landing. Please note that B Hangar is airside so there is no ground access for visitors unless by prior arrangement. Food and drink will be provided by LFA, no fixed charge but donations much appreciated. Normal landing fees apply and as usual PPR is required for non-resident aircraft. Please click here for the Visitors Briefing for Solent Airport (you'll find a link to the PPR form on the same page). You don't have to go to the tower to pay, call them on 01329 824748 and you can pay by card. Please note the close proximity of controlled airspace and take care not to infringe. As a conspicuity aid you are likely to be asked to squawk 4306 while working Lee Radio, this is to assist Solent Radar in understanding the intentions of aircraft near their airspace boundary who are not on frequency.
The Hovercraft Museum, at the south west corner of the airfield is usually open on Saturdays and there is a walkway for pilots and crew from the tower to the beach.If you'd like a lift to the tower or the Hovercraft Museum please ask, we should be able to oblige.
