Local Air Events Diary 2014

Any event, even with the best intentions and preparations, are always subject to change. The weather, operational requirements, aircraft serviceability as well as ‘acts of God’ have in the past (and will do in the future) all contrived to intervene and disappoint the organisers and visitors alike. Therefore Air NORTH does not accept responsibility for the non-appearance of an advertised item or cancelation of an event listed below. Please take time before setting out and check with the organisers direct. Those events marked with an * require some form of membership and are not generally open to the public, however viewing maybe possible from outside the event. Contact details are provided where known and were current as at 11th June 2014.
