Airshows 2023

Not All Airshows Are Equal

We recently exhibited at two of the premier air shows in the south of England.

And they couldn’t have been more different.

Our new look stand at Popham

On the 29/30 April we had the Eurofly Snake down at Popham for their annual, ever popular Microlight Fair. The turnout was pretty bouyant on the Saturday as the sunny warm weather brought many interested flyers and inquisitive visitors out for an afternoon of spring sunshine. We had fans of all ages wanting to take a seat in one of the lightest sub-70kg aircraft on the market. It was good to see some of our Snake flyers coming through and chatting with us. Plenty of interest in some of the new accessories we recently announced, particularly our new hand throttle assembly for the Snake. Cruising can now be as relaxing as sitting in your favourite beach chair.

If you missed it, we sent an announcement out before the Popham show about the new accessories we are launching this year. Visit our website for more details.

Sunday, as usual, was less trafficked but still much better than last year, when the cold drizzle turned many away. We still had a good turnout and spoke to several interested pilots looking to take a more leisurely approach to flying.


Private Flyer or Golf Pro or Dental Treatment?

Wycombe Park in Buckinghamshire, saw the return of the Private Flyer Airshow on the 19/20 May. To say it was an airshow is a slight over-statement. The exhibition was a combination of aircraft, golf, exotic cars, expensive art, perfumes and even some dental implants. It tried to cater to everything for those with money to burn. Most of the aircraft on display were of the more GA variety. We were by far the smallest wieght class of aircraft at the show.

We took the opportunity to showcase both our Eurofly Snake sub-70kg and our Minifox SSDR. The weather was the biggest feature of the show. Most of the attendees to the airshow were fallout from the PGA golf exhibit or elite cars. Nonetheless, we did have some interesting conversations and generated some real passion, including our very own BMAA CEO Rob Hughes. I think he’s in love with our Minifox!!

It’s always good to meet fellow flyers especially those whose passion is low and slow flying. We spend a lot of time preparing for these shows in the hope that we meet some new pilots and make some new acquaintances. Even though the Private Flyer show was not exactly overrun by pilots, we still came away from it with some friendly contacts and great memories.

We are now looking forward to our own fly-in to be announced for later this summer.

Watch this space!
