Vintage Gliders from across Europe will travel to Aston Down to celebrate this milestone Anniversary of the Vintage Glider Club.

For this event, there will be extra traffic on the approach road to the East of the Airfield entrance. The East Gate is at the end of The Downs road in Frampton Mansell.

The Gliding Club has assured us that the tow plane pilots will be briefed each day on the tow out patterns with the objective of avoiding, as far as possible, the nearby villages of Cherington, Avening and Frampton Mansell, and also avoiding overflying any houses, especially at low level during their circuit to land.

All are very welcome to visit the event and information for visitors can be found on the competition website
