STOKE GOLDING AIRFIELD
INFORMAL FLY-IN (STIFI)
Every year we hold a STIFI around late summer..
This year's date is Sunday August 28th!!
SAVE IT NOW!
The STIFI started in 2019 as an informal and easy fly-in for any machines with wings or wheels to come along and enjoy the airfield and countryside... and it was clearly very popular... In fact it seems the LAA have taken our lead with their 'Back to Roots' fly-in the weekend after!
In 2020, as many of you will know, we slotted our STIFI event in a short window of opportunity in the middle of the lunacy that we now call 'freedom crackdowns' but at the 11th hour we had to reclassify the event as a 'Non-Event' due to sensationally sensible decisions by the 'authorities'. But the concept of a 'non-event' was a great success and it was decided that 'non-events' are far more fun and we have followed the format every year since.
So for this 'non-event' please ensure you don't put the date in your diary (as soon as we haven't published it, which of course we now have) and make sure not to fly-in or bring an interesting machine along... and definitely don't consider enjoying the homemade refreshments and delicacies offered by 'Cathy's Cakes' our on-site catering team..
Make a point of not partaking in all the pilot banter associated with these kind of activities and certainly don't consider bringing a tent so you can enjoy a drink in the evening and not have a leisurely return flight on the Monday, which is of course a Bank Holiday.
All visitors welcome in any machine, landings are free as always... what more couldn't you want??
PPR us from the Pilots page on the site so we know you are coming or just call for joining instructions on 129.830 'Stoke Golding Base', with 5 miles to run.. Any Q's email email@example.com
See you in August hopefully!
