The Ghost Squadron Presents
In addition to building and flying a large range of models the Ghost Squadron also run several model flying events around the Country
2 week long modelling holiday events are held, one in June and one in August. One is in the West of the Country and the other at Binham in Norfolk, the private flying field of Ghost Squadron team member Andrew Taylor.
Both events are aimed at putting the fun back into flying, as many of the shows these days consist of a few slots a day at best and with very little time for modellers to sit and discuss future projects. These Ghost Squadron events allow modellers as much or as little flying as they like and also electrical and mechanical repairs can be carried out on site .The number of participants is limited to less than 25 caravans with a small amount of extra fliers allowed at weekends . This allows for a friendly atmosphere and no or very little waiting for a chance to fly .All types of flying models are welcome. Help and advice is freely available with many flyers choosing to carry out test flights during the week.
The events run mid week to mid week (Wed to Wed) to only take up one weekend. This is done purposely as many of the attendees have many weekend commitments flying at other shows and events.
In addition to the holiday weeks the Ghost Squadron host 4 Scale aero tow weekends at Middle Wallop Airfield in Hampshire. These weekend fly-ins have developed into the premier aero tow events on the UK calender. These are held
at Middle Wallop Army air base.
