Merlin Flying Club will be offering free landings and holding a party to celebrate its 52-year tenure at Hucknall airfield.
Merlin Flying Club Secretary Katerine Lomas said:
“Hucknall Airfield will close permanently on 1st March 2015. In order to celebrate our 52 year tenure at Hucknall, the Merlin Flying Club will be offering Free Landings throughout February, so this is a great last opportunity for pilots to get Hucknall in their log-book (We operate weekends only. No fuel available). Hucknall is an historic airfield, having been in continuous use for 99 years, playing a role in both world wars before becoming a flight test facility for Rolls-Royce.
“Merlin Flying Club will be holding a party on the weekend of 28th Feb-1st March with free overnight camping available and a fireworks display on the Saturday evening. The club would welcome visiting pilots to join us for this event.”
