Saturday, May 25, 10am-4pm
The roar of engines will fill the sky above Goodwood’s historic aerodrome building while an array of aircraft will be on display including gliders, a Pilatus PC-12, and Westland Wasp, as a free aviation open day is held. The event will enable visitors to climb aboard aircraft and meet the pilots, as well as the chance to experience the thrills of flying in a fighter jet in the MACH 3 Simulator.
Aside from aviation, there will be tether hot air balloon flights, while the new Goodwood Aerodrome Café features a seating area, with food and drink using locally sourced produce.
The thriving centre of aviation will offer behind-the-scenes tours of the aerodrome building with the new rooftop observation deck hosting a vast collection of aircraft from the Chichester and District Model Aero Club.
Dogs are welcome and parking will be available on site with all charity proceeds going to Canine Partners, a charity transforming the lives of people living with disabilities by training assistance dogs.
