Ground Events


Every so often the club runs various ground visits. They have been wide ranging and not always of an aviation theme. The most recent ground events were the workshop visits of the 31st January 2015, and the Valentine Lunch at Sywell on 14th February 2015. Links to our facebook page with photographs of these events can be found on our Past Events page.

The Annual Dinner:

Held every March the Annual Dinner is the Club’s formal evening of the year where the activities of members and people in the Vintage & Classic aviation world are recognised with the annual awards, nominated by the membership, presented by the guest speaker. The guest speaker is a member of the aviation community usually with Vintage aviation connections. Recent years have seen Brian Lecomber, Barry Tempest, Melvyn Hiscock, Captain Eric “Winkle” Brown, Arthur Ord-Hume, Mandy Pantall, Sally Ellingboe and the late Ann Welch speak before the assembled members. Details of our guests and how to attend the dinner are published in the Club magazine, “Vintage & Classic”.

The AGM & Social:

The Vintage Aircraft Club, being a Company registered with Companies House, hold their Annual General Meeting in line with these requirements. This includes the election of the committee and a report from the Chairman on the previous year. Any matters relating to the running and the constitution of the Club are also raised and addressed by the membership. In the past these used to be held at Finmere on a Rally day but as we moved away from out “ancestral” home the AGM moved to an evening “ground” event incorporating a social event too. 2011 saw us return to an airfield event for members only and resulted in the ability for members to fly-in again.
