In 2019 the Friends of Barton Aerodrome held a two day fly-in over the weekend of 18th and 19th May. A number of aircraft and helicopters visited on each day. Below you will see photographs from this event.
We had hoped to have held a fly-in on the 4th July 2020 to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the Kings Cup Air Race, when over 100 aircraft visited Barton as a stage post. However, due to the Coronavirus this has been cancelled.
We hope to run more fly-ins in the future and information will be given on our website once details are finalised.

Some Friends of Barton Aerodrome Members were trained with marshalling aircraft and used their new skills over the weekend. Here a Cessna 172 is being marshalled to its parking spot.
The Friends of Barton Aerodrome had an area close to the Control for booking in visiting aircraft and running a number of Airport Tours throughout the weekend.
