British Aerobatics will stage its next Get into Aeros event at Fenland Airfield on 25-26 June. The event is aimed at PPLs who have tasted aerobatics and want to learn more, and those who are looking for ways to make their post-PPL flying more exciting.
This year the event has been opened to all age groups. The programme will involve two aerobatic flights with one of our experienced aerobatic instructors, and a chance to fly a short simple aerobatic sequence in front of a panel of judges.
In between there will be presentations on aerobatic topics and a chance for an audience with Nigel Lamb, eight times British aerobatic champion and Red Bull Air Race Championship winner. There will be demonstration flights of all levels of aerobatics and plenty of aerobatic pilots to chat with.
To join the event, the cost is £199 which includes all flying and activities. Free camping pitches are available on the airfield and food and refreshments will be available from the Fenland airfield restaurant.
The event is limited to 16 participants to ensure that everyone gets plenty of time to explore the sport.

Steve Todd, British Aerobatics Chairman, said, “Aerobatics is a fantastic way to improve your flying skills, understand the capabilities of your aircraft and explore the full dimensions of the sky. Our Get into Aeros events are extremely popular and offer a great opportunity to taste aerobatics in a fun and informative environment.”
British Aerobatics is the national governing body of sport aerobatics in the United Kingdom, recognised by Sport England and the Royal Aero Club. It arranges aerobatic competitions throughout the UK and sends teams to European and World championships.
