    About Us

    This year the 2023 Fly-in is to be held over the weekend of the 1st to 3rd September.
    We will be announcing the programme and open up registration in June. In addition to the ever popular boat trips, island tours, Gala Dinner, and Awards Ceremony, we hope to add some new attractions. However, for many, the big attraction is the simple enjoyment of spending a few days on the beautiful island of Alderney.

    The Alderney Flying Club was founded to promote General Aviation in the Channel Islands with a particular focus on Alderney, the most northerly of the Channel Islands. Our position 8 miles off the Normandy coast makes us an ideal pilots destination either as a stopover or to stay for a few days, or even make your home here. Alderney airfield was the first airfield to be developed in the islands in 1935 and remains the only airfield in the region with three runways, which come in very handy for the GA community flying here because we do have a bit of wind at times. The small size of the island means that the many attractions we offer, from Gannets and puffins to the best preserved small Roman Fort in the UK, are all within easy walking or cycling distance. We also have hire cars and Taxis and our own railway, the later operating weekends and bank holidays throughout the spring and summer.

    From a pilot’s viewpoint EGJA had the first GPS (now RNP) approach certified in the UK and with the recent changes post Brexit we will be one of only three airfields in the UK to retain that facility, along with our neighbours in Guernsey and Jersey.

    Our most popular event is the Fly-In which has been held in June annually for around 25 years. At its peak in the 1970’s the Fly-In attracted over a hundred planes. These days, numbers are usually nearer fifty but we still aim to put on a programme that will help visiting pilots and their passengers explore Alderney’s heritage, appreciate its flora and fauna, and enjoy themselves.
