Cardiff Airport Fly-in
On Sunday 9th August Cardiff Airport will open its doors to invite private aircraft to ‘fly in’ to Cardiff for a one-off reduced landing fee of only £15.
The ‘fly-in’ is open to light, privately owned aircraft weighing up to a maximum of two metric tonnes, offering a rare opportunity for pilots to enjoy the full experience of landing at a fully-operational commercial airport.
All money raised on the day will be donated to Wales Air Ambulance.
