Every year, Pooleys hosts an invitation only fly in at Compton Abbas Airfield in Dorset for their customers. Invitations are emailed approximately one month prior to the event. Space for landing aircraft is limited to around 120-130 and slot numbers are issued on a first reply basis. We do not insist on specific slot times but do ask for an estimate of your arrival time.
Pooleys pays for your landing fees and all arriving pilots are given a free bag of pilot's equipment. We run some competitions during the day including a Concours d'Elegance and furthest distance flown. There are always some stunning aircraft to come and see.
Compton Abbas is a beautiful airfield run by the Hughes family. The airfield is always popular and the restaurant serves excellent food and drinks. Pooleys have hosted their fly in at Compton for over 20 years.
