Information:

Our well known Antonov An-2 (HA-MKF) over-wintered safely in Hungary, but it took longer than expected to obtain cost estimates for the routine engine change and other necessary maintenance.
In April a review of economic conditions in the UK left it uncertain whether or not sufficient flying displays and introductory flights could be booked and flown in the second half of 2018 to pay the maintenance bill.

In practical terms the Club decided it would be more realistic to rest the An-2 in 2018 and seek finance from anyone interested in this very special classic operation for future years. If you know of anyone who might like to be involved in a group, alone, or in "Crowd Funding" please contact us !

FLYING DISPLAYS & EVENTS

Antonov AN-2, HA-MKF, has performed at large and small flying displays and other events throughout the UK for more than 20 years, with occasional visits to Ireland and other parts of Europe.

The AN-2 is a Short Take-off and Landing (STOL) aeroplane.  Being a very large biplane it cannot fly fast so the AN-2 demonstrates very slow flying, often within the boundaries of an airfield.  There are ample opportunities for photographers to get some fabulous pictures! 

Do have a look at the videos on this website – a picture is worth a thousand words.

Four of the AN-2 Club's regular pilots have Display Authorisations for demonstrating the AN-2, including formation flying that was impressively demonstrated with two other biplanes at a major Duxford display.

The AN-2 can also provide an impressive spectacle at other major events and even private  special occasions.
In addition to flying, the AN-2 can contribute an impressive presence in the static aircraft park and the AN-2 Club is often delighted to welcome visitors to take photos, see the aircraft close up, enter the passenger cabin and see the pilots' cockpit. 

The AN-2 is an impressive aircraft and represents a fascinating part of aviation history.

Judging by the very positive reaction from the public, the AN2 made our event one to remember. Your display was truly unique and captivated the crowd who were very entertained. Our air traffic control was amazed at the aircraft. - P A Chivers OBE, Royal Navy Yeovilton
