Annual Large Model Fly-In

A new event for owners and pilots of large models to enjoy flying their planes in an ideal setting.  Prizes will be awarded for various informal categories and for lucky draws for entrants.

THIS IS NOT A COMPETITION!  It is a chance to show your pride and joy in a stress-free, open atmosphere.  The runway and surrounds at Gratton Field are ideal for large models, even jets and there are no obstacles or difficulties.

The facilities at Gratton Field are second to none.  In addition to a long, well tended, runway there is a large covered canteen area with full kitchen facilities, a large permanent toilet block with hot showers.  Accommodation on site is in demountable cabins and powered or unpowered campsites.
