Looking ahead to the 2014 Sywell Rally

29th to 31st August, Sywell Aerodrome, Northants






The LAA Sywell Rally is growing year on year and the Rally Team continues to look at ways of enhancing the event even further. Several new ideas, including an aircraft Weight & Balance competition, are already in the pipeline for this year.



Exhibitor Information: Homebuilders Tent sponsored by LAS



If your business is recreational aviation then you really should be exhibiting at the LAA Sywell Rally. No other UK event attracts as many aircraft owners, builders and pilots, the very people who you need to attract to do business with your company. Past exhibitors tell us that they do more business at the LAA Rally than any other UK event. Plus you will be surprised at just how affordable it is to exhibit at this premier UK event. Information and pricing for exhibitors can be found here.


Layout of the Homebuilders Tent can be found here.



Awards & Trophies : Awards Ceremony sponsored by Adams Aviation

A number of prestigious Trophies and Awards are presented at the Rally, many celebrating the superbly built and restored aircraft that attend. If you would like to enter your aircraft for judging you can do so prior to the event or when you arrive. Latest judging takes place early afternoon on the Saturday. The awards ceremony arrangements will be confirmed later. Full details of the categories and how to enter can be found here.


Accommodation and Camping

Once again, this year's LAA Sywell Rally will have a dedicated campsite with hot showers and regularly serviced toilets, which will be sited in the field across the road from the aerodrome and run by Andover Strut members. The site will be up and running from Thursday afternoon and will close early on Monday morning. We hope to have a catering van open early morning and evening for tea, coffee and bacon sarnies.

There will be a single price of £30 per unit irrespective of length of stay (a unit being a tent, caravan or motorhome) on the day or for a discounted price of £20, you can pre-order now.


For arrivals by air, camping by your aircraft is included in the one off landing fee of £10 which also covers admission for all on board for three days (note that this fee covers one landing only, additional landings are £10 each).


For those not wishing to camp, a comprehensive list of local hotels can be found here.

Opening Times / Entrance Fees / Car Parking


We appreciate that finding spare money is not always easy in the current climate and will, for the FIFTH year running, not be raising admission prices or landing fees. Full details of the 2014 admission charges and opening can be found here.



Entertainment and General Information

Once again the beer festival will be taking place over the weekend organised by Sywell Aerodrome. Food and entertainment will be available in Hangar 1 on Saturday evening. And of course, the ever popular Homebuilders Tent will be on show again this year.
