English version: De Cocksdorp (Texel) – From 23 until the 25th of August 2019 it’s time for the 11th edition of the famous Texel Fly-in at Texel international Airport (EHTX). The biggest Fl-in in the Netherlands! If the flying conditions are good, we do expect 200 to 250 visiting aircraft over the whole weekend.

Why is the Fly-in that special?
In the first place is “friendship part of our business” at Texel Airport. The airport managers Ed (father) and Mike (son) de Bruijn and their enthusiastic staff members will do anything to make your visit remarkable. The unique position of the airport on the beautiful Wadden Island Texel is also special. Participants for the Fly-in are coming from all Europe to Texel. Of course most of them are Dutch, but alo pilots from Belgium, England, Germany and France fly to Texel. That’s why it’s an international event!

Purpose
The main purpose of the fly-in is to bring aviation minded people together and to share their knowledge, experience and passion. Last but not least, it’s a perfect weekend to make new friendships.

Programm
Fly to Texel Airport on Friday and remain on the island for the weekend. It’s allowed to ‘camp under the wing’. We have mobile showers and a toilet trolley. We have a lot of hotels and cosy B&B at the island. Or book a nice room is our hotel at the airport De Vlijt. You can also book direct via 0031 222 311 233. You can have dinner in the airportrestaurant on Friday. On Saturay and Sunday morning the restaurant will serve breakfast.

Main day of the Fly-in is the Saturday. “Day visitors” with any type of aircraft are more than welcome! We have an airfair for all pilots and their crew with ‘aviation’ stands. Also some sponsors are involved in the airfair. Some guest speakers will give a presentation in the Gliding Club Texel. The organization will do their best to have some beautiful aircraft of various manufacturers to Texel. If you want to join, just contact us (info@texelairport.nl). In the evening there is good BBQ on the terrace (or with bad weather inside) of the airport restaurant De Vlijt.
