20 years ago, almost like making a joke, Beatrice and Thierry started an event, becoming a beautiful tradition: one of the biggest aeronautical events of the year in France. Yes, we are talking about the Fly IN Saint Yan. One of the favourite events of those loving noise, rare planes, meeting other aviation fans and pick-nicks under the wings. 

This year, the 20’s anniversary will be celebrated at the airfield of Saint Yan (LFLN) the weekend of 12th of June. The organizers decided to make a big and memorable birthday with a dream program (RAFALE SOLO DISPLAY, SPTFIRES, DOUGLAS and many more amazing airplanes and their pilots but also aerobatics, and ULM).  

Luxembourg is this year again Guest of Honour as last year the weather didn’t allow many to join. 

For more information check the meeting website and the flyer.

Some of our members have already booked a room at the Hotel Saint Benoit (Facebook),7 rue du Port, F-71130 Gueugnon, (+/- 25 km from the Saint Yan airfield – a bus will be made available by the organisation of the event to shuttle to the airfield) Telephone: +33 (0)3 85 85 23 23 where a limited number of rooms are still available (first come, first served; Single room: 55€/night; double room :75€/night, breakfast: 8€ per person).
