Private Flying European Fly In.

Suggestions please for a place and date for a European fly-in.

My suggestions are: L2K or anywhere in Ireland and the date I suggest is 29 July or 4th/5th August.

Please use this thread to suggest place and dates. After a week or so we will see where is popular and when and decide from that.

Thanks.

Well doesn't seem to be much interest!

If I can get a club plane booked for a day or 2 (busy time of year for club planes) then I will definatley be up for it.

Would this be an overnight destination or a day trip?

Two nominations for Deauville.

Don't think there will be other suggestions so now to decide a date for a day out.....

OK, Deauville it is!
I'll be going in a SR22, so let me know if you want to fill the remaining seats.
Don't care when.
Stick.

You could always try the fly-in at Spa on 3, 4 and 5 August.

I'm happy with Deauville. It has a restaurant at the airport with a good reputation (imaginatively titled Restaurant de l'Aeroport I think). The only downside is that it's an expensive taxi ride into town - about EUR 35 each way for Honfleur. I probably wouldn't bother going into town though.

Any takers for Saturday 14th July?

I can't believe you tight *rsed pilots are put off a trip to one of the most beautiful towns in France by a 20 quid each way taxi-ride, when you can save this (and then some) by the fuel drawback.
I don't post on PPRuNe much but as my planned trip to Deauville last week was clobbered by fog I might even be up for this.
I'll pay for a taxi : the rest of you tight-*rsed gits can walk.................
Safe flying

Yes, maybe that is a bit tight . Honfleur is lovely, but I've been a number of times before and stayed overnight too. So the thought of paying an extra 50 for a quick walk round the harbour and a visit to a chocolate shop seemed unappealing.

[Edited to add...]

I'll be flying from Cranfield and should be able to take at least one other. I'll probably fly IFR in the airways, so it may be a good opportunity for someone who's thinking about doing an IR and wants to see what you get for your money.

Dates are difficult for me. I can definitely do either the 14th/15th July or the 25th/26th August, but anything in between is unlikely.

Well, buggered if I'm flying to Deauville then just eating at the airfield, I'm still voting for a taxi into Honfleur. A really pretty town with some fabulous restaurants. Somebody proposed 14th July, I'll second that

If I can get a club plane for the day then count me in. If not does any fancy a pit stop at Filton?

Subject to Mrs M9's social diary and the date we eventually decide upon, I may have a spare seat from Upfield Farm.
