Posted on: 24 May 2016

Bristol Airport Spotting will once again hold an Aviation Fair in partnership with Bristol Airport on Sunday 18 September 2016 between 10.30am and 4.00pm. This year’s event will be supporting the airport’s charity of the year, Children's Hospice South West.

The event will be held in the Bristol Room - rarely opened to the public. It’s located in the airport administration building, which is actually the old passenger terminal which was closed back in 2000. This is the first building on the left as you enter the site. Ample seating will be available for visitors to enjoy panoramic views of aircraft departing and arriving and photography is very much welcome.


This year is expected to be even bigger than the previous years so a larger number of exhibitors are being welcomed to the fair. Exhibitors include: Bristol Airport Spotting, Airliner World Magazine, Bristol and Wessex Aeroplane Club, Bristol Aero Collection, Fly2Help, IPMS Avon Model Club, South West Photographers and many others offering postcards, photos, aircraft models, books and pretty much anything related to aviation.

Aviation Fair 2016 is the perfect day out for families, enthusiasts, individuals or anyone just curious about aviation or Bristol Airport itself. With plenty of exhibitors and vendors there’s plenty to do for visitors of all ages. Once the fair closes head over to the Bristol and Wessex Aeroplane Club where there will be a barbecue and events for children and adults alike.


The 2016 event will be raising money for Bristol Airport’s chosen charity Children's Hospice South West. They provide hospice care for life-limited children and their families from across the South West of England. Find out more about the amazing work they do by visiting
