Your ticket price includes attendance at lectures and presentations held in the superb purpose-built Marshall auditorium, refreshments and a buffet lunch served in the Concorde meeting room.
Duxford is a very welcoming GA airfield and is home to one of the best aviation museums in the world housing many of the most significant aircraft of the 20th century, including Concorde, B17, Lightning, SR-71 Blackbird, TSR-2, MiG-21, P-51, F-86, Spitfire, Hurricane Lancaster and dozens more.
For your guests who may not wish to attend the presentations, we have organised free expert-led morning and afternoon guided tours taking in particular aspects of the museum.
You can fly in or drive in, but you must book your landing slot (the landing fee has been discounted to £7) and tickets in advance on the AOPA website
Ticket price is £20 per person for tickets purchased up to and including Saturday 15 September, after which the ticket price will be £25.
We look forward to welcoming you to Duxford!
We have added some extra landing slots for arrival between 0930 and 1030 local time. So if you looked for a slot and couldn't find the time you wanted, email AOPA and they will sort it out for you. Don't leave it too late to book up -- a lot of slots have already gone.
If you can't fly, don't forget you can come to this Bonus Day by car - but you still need to register at the AOPA site.
The forecast is not great - especially for folk coming from the south. Don't forget, if you don't want to fly, you can drive.
We have had some cancellations, so anybody who has not yet booked and wants to fly in can do so - call 01223 833376 after 8.15.
