Aircraft will be on show and pilots will be giving talks at Northrepps Aerodrome's open day on Saturday, July 22.

Various aircraft of all types will be arriving throughout the day and there will be refreshments and a barbecue to enjoy while soaking up the aviation atmosphere.

Club members' aircraft on show will include Paramotors, Microlights, Gyroplanes and Light Aircraft.

Providing the weather is suitable, club members will again be offering short Air Experience Flights to visitors in return for a donation to the East Anglian Air Ambulance represented by volunteer Jamie Edgehill who will have a stand with EAAA merchandise.

The last open day collected over £1500 for the air ambulance and organisers hope to do as well this time.

While the event is planned for July 22, 10am to 3pm, it will open on the Sunday, July 23, instead, if it's wet and windy.
