Please get in touch if you would like to hold an event with us, or arrange a 'Fly-In'. We often have weather back up days so keep an eye on here for updated dates. 
 

British Aerobatics UK - POSTPONED
Friday 19th July 2019 - Saturday 20th July 2019

POSTPONED DUE TO WEATHER

The BAeA has just confirmed that this weekend's re-scheduled Aerobatics event is postponed due to the weather forecast.  We will keep you informed as soon as we secure an alternative date.


We will be hosting the British Aerobatics UK event at Compton Abbas again this year, 19th and 20th July

Last year we enjoyed two glorious days of sunshine so fingers crossed for a repeat this year. This is a spectacular event to sit and watch from the Club patio, so make sure you put it in your diary. We will also be running a normal flying program over these days so, weather permitting, there should be plenty of flying to enjoy whilst also sampling the delights of the famous Compton restaurant.

Pooley's Day
Sunday 22nd September 2019

Always one of our busiest and most popular days at the airfield.

Compton and Pooleys go back a good 25 years and the airfield is one of the original ‘partners’ with the popular aviation equipment supplier. It’s a great day for members of the public to come up and spectate with over 120 aircraft booked to fly in. 

Pilots: you will need to PPR with Pooleys ahead of the event please. 

Christmas Fly In
Saturday 7th December 2019

Our last Fly In for 2019, so lets make it a great one as we enjoy the Christmas period festivities. 

We will have a range of festive goodies on the menu too; mulled wine on tap, lovely handmade treats from our local cake supplier, cinnamon coffees, and a lot more. 

We would love to see our members and our flying visitors partake in the spirit of the event. If you arrive as Father Christmas, an Angel, Elf or even better a Christmas Pudding we will in return provide you with a free landing fee. For those of you who come up on the day, whether student, solo hire or aircraft owner, there will be a prize for the best Christmas fancy dress. Compton Ops will be sure to be worse dressed with the fancy dress box already out the loft. 

New Years Day Fly In
Tuesday 1st January 2019 at 9.30 am

With Christmas behind us, what better way to start 2019 than to visit the airfield for our first event, the New Years Day Fly In. Weather permitting, this is a popular event and aircraft normally travel from far and wide to visit us. 

With free landings to all aircraft we'll have a selection of winter warmers on the menu for you too (and some salads for those of you that need to watch your weight and balance calculations). Don't forget that our Channel changes to 122.710 on this day.

Its free entry as always for those of you who come up by road. Everyone is welcome - and if its nice sunny weather there should be lots of flying activity to view!
