Fly UK Virtual Airways: Invites you to The Airport Hotel



Fly UK are pleased to announce that we have organised another one of our popular social gatherings at "The Airport Hotel" at Manchester Airport on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th of August. This real world event is open to anyone who wishes to come along; Fly UK members will be there from 10.30am on the Saturday.

This event will be spread over the weekend, starting with Saturday 8th being at the 'Airport Hotel' which is situated at the end of runway 23R and gives a fantastic view of arrivals and departures (11:00z - 14:00z). After the daytime event on the 8th, we will be doing what we do best and ‘hitting’ Manchester in the night time. Please note that for obvious reasons, this part of the event is strictly for over 18's only.

During the day of Sunday 9th, it will be up to members as to what they wish to do. Usually, we visit the Aviation Viewing Park, but we will be open to any suggestions at all regarding the day's events.

Members are free to attend one or both days if they wish, the more people the merrier! Some of us will be staying at the hotel on Friday 7th March also, so if you wish to turn up then, you will be more than welcome.

Hotels / Accommodation

There are various hotels situated around the vicinity of Manchester Airport and most of us will be staying at Bewleys near the Airport Train Station. It usually works about £60 - £70 per night per room, so two sharing is only £30 (ish) each. Manchester is easily accessible via train, bus or car if you wish to drive.

The event itself will start at about 10:30am on the 8th, and we will meet in the beer garden of the Airport Hotel. The pub car park does require £5, but you can redeem £4 of this at the bar. We will then probably run through until mid to late afternoon and then try and be out in Manchester for about 20:00. Please remember to bring some form of ID with you, as many places in Manchester demand to see ID to gain entry.

For information regarding flights or other forms of transport to Manchester Airport, please check the following link: http://www.manchesterairport.co.uk If required, transport from the airport to the Airport Hotel, can be provided to you by a fellow Fly UK member, if you travel by plane or train.

This event is a perfect opportunity for members of the VA to get together in one location, have a good day and also a good laugh. We hope to see as many people there as possible, as the more people who turn up the better the day will be. We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on the 8th of August from 10:30am!

If you are planning on attending this event, can you please just give us a 'heads up' in the attendance thread please, this can be found here:

Once again, we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on the day!

Regards, Fly UK Staff Team
