Following the success of the Vintage Fly-In and Air Display in June this year, the West Sussex-based Goodwood Aero Club will once again be staging this popular air show in 2008, with the dates set for the late May bank holiday weekend, Sunday 25 and Monday 26 May 2008.
The 2008 Goodwood Aero Club Vintage Fly-In and Air Display will give the opportunity for everyone to get close to the pioneering and evocative aircraft from the golden age of flying, be they avid aviation enthusiasts or curious casual observers.
The Goodwood Aero Club Vintage Fly-In and Air Display uniquely caters for historic aircraft, with the majority being built pre-1967. It includes a number of vintage aircraft air displays, planned to be held on both days, plus the rare opportunity for visitors to experience first hand an aerobatic excursion or a memorable flight in an historic aircraft, including Goodwood’s own lovingly-restored Harvard.
A large variety of attractions for all the family, including a traditional vintage fun fair, modern aircraft, avionics displays and a host of other entertainments, will also be on hand.
The Goodwood Aerodrome will be open between 09:00 to 18:30 on both days, and all aircraft owners are invited to ‘fly-in’ in vintage clothing. Free entry and no landing fee will be offered for any pre-1967 aircraft flying into the event. A normal landing fee will apply to all other aircraft, although pilots landing at Goodwood will gain free admission into the event. Prior landing permission will be required.
The Goodwood Aerodrome is located at the former RAF Westhampnett, a key Battle of Britain airfield, and the site of Sir Douglas Bader’s final sortie. Today the site includes the world famous Goodwood Motor Circuit, the sympathetically-restored race track that hosts the nostalgic Goodwood Revival meeting every autumn (19-21 September 2008); an event that also includes a breathtaking aviation element, in addition to the spectacular array of cars and motorcycles, with star drivers and riders that thrill the crowds.
The Goodwood Aero Club offers enthusiasts the opportunity to indulge their passion for aviation and flying, to be part of Goodwood’s rich aviation history.
