Auster 80th

The Official Auster 80th Fly-in

10:00 am – 5:00 pm

In association with the International Auster Club, the Museum of Army Flying and the Army Air Corps, is returning to Middle Wallop to celebrate another former AAC type; the venerable Taylorcraft Auster. Bigger and better than before, the event will span the weekend of 7-8 April 2018.

2018 marks the 80th anniversary of Taylorcraft Aeroplanes (England) Ltd, the builders of the iconic Auster air observation post (AOP) aircraft. A derivative of the Taylor (now Piper) Cub, more than 1,600 Austers were produced during WWII and the type’s success continued post-war with production of the AOP.9 ceasing in 1961.

Adult, child and family tickets are available for either or both of the days.

Tickets entitles the holder to gain access to both the airfield and the Museum.
