The 21st Anniversary of the Annual Alderney ‘Island Air Races’ is due to take place over the weekend of Saturday 23rd & Sunday 24th September 2017
The ’Alderney Island Air Races’ are organised by the Royal Aero Club Records, Racing and Rally Association and run jointly by both them and the Alderney Flying Club.This year's Island Air Races were held on Saturday 24th September 2016 and Sunday 25th September 2016.
The 2015 Alderney Air Races were filmed as part of a new six, one-hour episode observational documentary series, which has been commissioned by BBC 2, to be broadcast in a primetime slot in early 2016. It is expected to be one of the biggest BBC documentary series of year, taking as it will, a fresh look at Britain's air space, bringing to life the invisible and largely unknown infrastructure of our skies through a broad range of characters and situations, including, we are glad to say, Air Racing.
