London Luton Airport (LLA) is hosting a fly-in event for local general aviation pilots at Old Warden aerodrome in Bedfordshire next month.

The event is aimed at providing the GA community with all the information they need to operate safely in and around LLA’s controlled airspace.

Representatives from the airport’s Flight Operations team, the Civil Aviation Authority and air traffic control provider NATS will be at the event which will include a number of interactive stands and competitions.

All landing fees will be waived for those flying into the event.

Bradley Timmins, Airspace Performance Assessor at London Luton Airport said:

“The airspace surrounding London Luton Airport is some of the busiest in the world. It is vital that anyone wishing to fly in this area has the correct information to hand. This event aims to ensure GA pilots are able to fly safely, efficiently and carefully through the congested airspace. The fly-in will be a great opportunity for us to showcase all of the projects we have been working on, including our new operating guide. We’ve also organised a number of give-aways with the chance to win a tour or the airport, a year’s subscription to SkyDemon, and a gift card to Pooleys the aviation supplier.”

The event will be held at Old Warden Aerodrome (EGTH) on 27th October between 1200 and 1600. Those wishing to attend are asked to email; vfr@ltn.aero
