There are plenty of hard standing walkways along the showground where the static aircraft are parked however there is also a grassed area from the hard standing to the crowdline which can be uneven in places and not always practical for wheelchairs and mobility scooters.
Unfortunately, pet dogs and any other animals are not permitted entry to the showground, Park & View areas or official RIAT car parks. This is not only for health and safety reasons, but the vast majority of aircraft at RIAT are extremely noisy and very likely to cause distress to any animal.
RIAT is committed to being a fully inclusive event and because of this, we do recognise that some visitors will require a dog to accompany them for medical reasons.
In compliance with the Equality Act 2010, we will accommodate them in this situation via a case-by-case basis.
To proceed with an application, contact us via email@example.com.
Once you have done this, you will be sent a form which must be completed in order for us to collect the relevant information about you and your animal.
Following a successful application, you will be supplied with a reference number for your dog which will allow us to identify it.
Electric scooters and manual wheelchairs must be booked in advance. To book visit www.eventmobility.org.uk, email: firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the office on 01386 725391 to request an advance booking form.
The pick-up/drop-off points will be close to the customer entry points in the Red Car Park on Friday and both Red and Green Car Parks Saturday & Sunday and by the Yellow Customer Entry Point for those coming by bus/coach.
If you hire an electric scooter or wheelchair from Event Mobility this entitles you to a RIAT Accessible Parking Permit for our designated car parks - please call our Customer Services Department (01285 713456) to order your permit. Please note you will be asked to quote your Event Mobility booking reference number, so please have this to hand when calling.
