Hi all yes it on the great Essex Fly-in its being held at Baldwinds Farm Barling Essex this post code

SS3 0LN will take you to the entrance of the farm, as you come along Litttle Wakering Rd there is a Nursery called Little Rascal's along side of the nursery you will find the drive way to the farm its fairly long and fairly bumpy, PLEASE NO SPEEDING 5mph.

You will be able to get onsite from 2pm Friday 24th if there are people who want to arrive later than 8pm let me know please so we can keep gates open for you.

You can arrive on site Sat & Sun from 6am.

No flying until you recieve a briefing

Over the weekend there will be a number of trade stand's present so far confirmed to me are:

Bailey Aviation new V5 lightweight Paramotor + demo wings

Bulldog Paramotor's + demo wings

Custom Air Kobra Paramotor's + the new Kobra Wing

UKPPG EC Extreme/Flat Top + Accessories


There is plenty of camping and parking, toilets sorry no showers though although if the tides in ya can jump in the river should you wish.

We are not charging for camping or flying etc but we will have two tins for donations, to the farmer and the local childrens hospice. Refreshmants will be available Tea/Coffee burger's etc bacon roll's £1.80 Mmmmmm.

We are having a BBQ Sat night so bring your own Beer Wine Etc

The event is for everyone new or old to the sport there is no minimum hours required to fly and there will be one or two instructors about over the weekend so if you intereasted in taking up the sport this is the ideal time to come along and talk to people about it. We are hoping to have some fun and games over teh weekend and are aiming for a friendly fun atmosphere so dont be shy come on down!!!!

Any questions just ask or PM me if you would prefer if you could please just tick the poll so we can get a rough idea of numbers trade stands welcome but please contact me to confirm arrangements.

I think iv'e covered everything if I have forgotten anyone or thing im sorry but will update as we get nearer the date if the weathers good this is going to be a fantastic event so dont miss it.

Ok weather wise its looking ok Sunday looking to be the best day but with local knowledge etc and maybe a bit of wishful thinking the weekend is looking totally flyable. early morning at evenings will always moostly be flyable down here so hoping that we have lots of pilots come so looking forward to maybe having a mass blast along the beach.

Anyone need to contact us my mobile is 07977137255

See ya there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Due to some last minute commitments, I'll be getting there mid-afternoon on the Saturday.

(Probably about 3pm).

XCWeather is showing weather being a little questionable on the Saturday anyway, but I'll be there in time for the possibility of any evening flying and then beers and barbecue ready to get up at the crack of dawn for some nice flying on the Sunday! :)

Sunday morning currently looks really good!
