Air Racing at Enniskillen
**** Air Racing is returning to Enniskillen Airport ****
In July 2013 the Airport hosted a round of the Royal Areo Club Air Racing. Pilots and their race planes travelled from Ireland, England and Wales to participate in an event which saw them flying a low level course around Lower Lough Erne. Due to the success of this event the Royal Aero Club have confirmed their return on the 18th and 19th July 2015.
Air racing in the UK is certainly as old as aviation itself and the magnificent trophies competitors race for each year carry some pioneers in the history of flight. Unlike aerobatics, handicap racing around a 25 mile course provides a spectacle unrivalled in the UK general aviation scene. Whether pilot, enthusiast or spectator the annual series of races around the UK provide a great opportunity to experience real close quarter racing.
Further details will be announced as they become available.
