Pooley’s Day 2022

With covid and the weather conspiring against us for a few years, the boys and girls at Pooleys and Compton, were nervously monitoring the weather forecast for the days prior to this planned event. With 160 of Pooley’s (the aviation equipment suppliers) customers due to visit us in their aircraft, we were all praying for sunshine and light winds! And we got it (for the most part, a little bit of a strong south westerly on Sunday but everyone loves a challenge!).

With over 160 pilots, plus co-pilots and friends and family, the pilots terrace was back to its historic buzzing self, with lots of people enjoying a drink and a bit to eat and soaking up the sun. All whilst delving in to their goodie bags from Pooleys which contained some freebies as a thank you for being their customers.

A huge thank you to our wonderful members and radio operators who volunteered their time and did an outstanding job on the marshalling which was a vital part in making the day run so smoothly. As well of course as our ops team, flight instructors and cafe team.

Lots of our visitors by road enjoyed the newly expanded Runway Cafe which has great views of the runway and flying activity. Thanks to everyone for coming to see us and we hope you all enjoyed the day as much as we did!
