Sandown airfield on the south-east of the Isle of Wight continues to develop its facilities with the addition of six new hangars.
2018 Microlight Trade Fair
On Saturday and Sunday the 5th and 6th of May 2018, our friends at Popham Airfield will host the annual Microlight Trade Fair. Attracting over 3,000 visitors each year, the fair is a fantastic event for both industry professionals and enthusiasts. Visitors can get up close and personal with the aircraft and experience what it’s like to fly with their flight simulator. 2018 will see a new addition to the event in the form of the Spitfire Stage, set to host a collection of engaging talks and presentations.
If you’re interested to see our Hangars up close, a visit to Popham will introduce you to a collection of 21 light aircraft hangars that we’ve proudly supplied since 2013. If the fair turns you to idea of microlight ownership then keep an eye out for one of our Scout hangars, at 5.5 meters wide this hangar is perfect for microlite and demountable wing aircraft.
The event runs from 10 am to 5 pm both days, admission is £7 for adults and £5 for children and OAPs. Kids under 4 go free. There is ample parking on site and visitors who wish to fly in are welcome to do so. For more information on the event visit the events page of the Popham Airfield website.
