Pooleys Air Days 2023 - 23rd/24th September 2023
Update 18/09/23 - The Pooleys Air Days are both completely full and we are unable to accept any further requests for slots.
We very much look forward to seeing those of you who have managed to get a slot and hope that those who have been unsuccessful this year will try to join us in 2024.
Every year, Pooleys hosts an invitation only fly in at Compton Abbas Airfield (EGHA) in Dorset for their customers. Invitations are emailed approximately 2-3 weeks prior to the event. Space for landing aircraft is limited to around 80 per day and slot numbers are issued on a first reply basis. We do ask you to choose a 15 minute slot time as an estimate of your arrival time. We will be running the event over 2 days again this year.
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 now run by the Ritchie family. The airfield is always popular and the restaurant serves excellent food and drinks. Pooleys have hosted their fly in at Compton for over 25 years.

Finally, here are a few words of thanks from those who have attended:
"I wanted particularly to thank you firstly for laying on the day and secondly for the amazing generosity of your "goodie" bag. It was all very much appreciated by me and I am sure other attendees."
"I’d just like to extend my thanks to all of your team and the guys at Compton Abbas for a really enjoyable event. It was my first proper fly-in although I've been flying for a long time. It was very well organised, a beautiful airfield and a fantastic goodie bag from your good selves. So a big thank you to you all. I’ll definitely try and make future events."
"Thank you for a great day at Compton. I met a lot of old friends. Everyone was so friendly."
"Thanks for a really great day and so well organised."
"It’s us who should be thanking you for a superb day and for your generosity. A really enjoyable day out and great to be able to talk with Garmin as well.
