Aviation in Alderney

Alderney is home to a small airfield, allowing private aviators to land on the island and avoid the crowds in the busier seasons. Aviation in Alderney is celebrated through two immensely popular annual aviation events. If you are planning on visiting Alderney, we recommend doing so during one of these, as the excitement is palpable in the island’s atmosphere — and infectious.

Annual Fly-In
On 23rd–24th June 2018, the Annual Fly-In, one of the island’s most popular events celebrating aviation in Alderney, returns for another weekend, allowing light aircraft to fly in and enjoy boat trips and excursions across the island, concluding with a special dinner.

Alderney Air Races
On 22nd September 2018, Alderney hosts its annual air races event, in which over 20 planes complete in over 100 miles in the final of nine races around Britain.
