Friends of Barton Aerodrome (FoBA) are pleased to advise that their 2022 Fly-in is planned for Sunday 25th September at City Airport. More information will be added as it becomes known.

In the meantime we have two other Fly-ins planned at City Airport / Barton Aerodrome this year and details of these are below. FoBA are pleased to be involved with these and our members will be helping with Aircraft Marshalling, Airside Gate control, recording arrivals and departures, plus offering short airport tours to the visitors the day.

All pilots that are planning to come to any of the Fly-ins this years should PPR in advance with City Airport. This can easily be done on line by clicking on the following link : Inbound PPR (
