Auto Gyro Fly-in Record Breaker!

Following the success of three previous fly-ins at Old Warden, the British Rotorcraft Association will once again be hosting the Gyro Record Breaker. In 2019 we had the largest number of autogyro’s (Gyrocopters) to be at one UK airfield in one day, and if the conditions are right, we believe this figure could be closer to 100.

Old Warden is home to the famous “Little Nellie” as flown in James bond’s “You Only Live Twice”, and she will be out on public display with all the others.

Saturday 21st of May 2022 is the day for your diary, and we hope to see you there.

Explore almost 60 acres of Shuttleworth, including the famous Shuttleworth Collection, the beautiful Swiss Garden & the historic Lakeside Parkland with views of Shuttleworth House plus the children’s playground. Shuttleworth gift shop and Runway Cafe. 


To join us on this day you will need either a Visitor Attraction 30-day admission ticket or Valid Membership
