Friends of Barton Fly-in
City Airport (Barton), Liverpool Road, Eccles, Manchester, UK
All types of General Aviation aircraft are welcomed and pilots should pre-book their arrival on the Airport PPR form (link below).
On the day there will be no landing fees for aircraft arriving for the Fly-in.
We plan to award certificates and prizes to the following :
- Best Homebuilt aircraft
- Best Vintage aircraft
- Best rotorcraft aircraft
- Shortest flight to Barton from a different location
- Longest flight to Barton
- Smartest aircraft to visit
For the shortest and longest flights these will be measured as a straight line from Barton and should two or more aircraft arrive from the same location, the first to arrive would be judged the winner.
We shall also be offering short tours (about 20 to 30 minutes) of the Airport which will include a short history and details some of the historic buildings on site.
The Airport also offers refreshments on site and those with a shopping trend, the Trafford Centre is close by.
The Airport will be open for aircraft movements from 9.00am to 6.00pm and we look forward to welcoming all visitors to our Fly-in.
