Alderney Fly-in 2024

We look forward to welcoming you to the 2024 Alderney Fly-in, to be held from Friday 6th to Sunday 8th of September 2024. The highlights of this year’s Fly-in will be the usual Aviator’s BBQ and Gala Dinner but, working closely with Visit Alderney, we plan to give you the freedom to enjoy the wide range of activities the Island has to offer. We have also arranged a few special attractions (details of which you can find below) all of which we hope will make the 2024 Alderney Fly-in one to remember.
