STOKE GOLDING AIRFIELD

INFORMAL FLY-IN (STIFI) 

Every year we hold a STIFI around late summer..

 

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 VERY popular...

 

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 time were known as 'loc*downs' (we don't like to use expletives on the site).

 

At the 11th hour we had to reclassify the event as a 'Non-Event' due to sensationally sensible decisions by the Dictators...err, I mean authorities. The concept was a great success and it was decided that 'non-events' are far more fun, so we will be following the same format this year.

 

Please ensure you don't put the date in your diary (as soon as we haven't published it) 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'.

 

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 Sunday.

 

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..

 

See you later this year.. check back here regularly for dates!
