The LAA is delighted to be returning to Popham for our 2023 Grass Roots Fly-In, over the three days Fri 18th to Sunday 20th August. As always, the weekend will focus on the fly-in and social elements of our annual event; provide the opportunity to see a wide range of exhibitors, hear from industry experts in our Speakers corner programme of talks, get hands-on skills experience, meet our engineering staff, purchase LAA merchandise and relax in the Struts & Clubs stand. This year, event entry for non-members will include access to the aircraft park within the entrance admission.
We have retained the spacious main exhibitor marquee, again sponsored by Light Aero Spares, which proved so popular with exhibitors and members alike. The Speakers Corner marquee, sponsored by Garmin, will host a varied programme of talks throughout the weekend, including an open Q&A session each day with CEO, Simon Tilling. New for this year, will have an extended marquee housing LAA activities, including the Flea market which provides the opportunity to offload those unwanted items and spares, as well as bargain hunt for those much needed, but hard to find parts! Outside provides the space for larger displays and we will look forward to showcasing manufacturers and distributors of a wide range of the latest aircraft types from across the LAA fleet.
This year, in addition to the exhibition site catering, there will be an on-site bar which will be available in the exhibition site during the day and relocate to the Club House to support evening on-site catering on the Friday and Saturday evenings. On site camping and free car parking will also be available.
We look forward to seeing you at Popham for this year’s LAA Grass Roots Fly-In!
