Welcome to Retford (Gamston) Airport

Since acquiring the airport in 1993, Gamston Aviation Limited has carried out a continuous programme of improvements to facilities. These comprise, complete runway resurfacing, improved taxiways, hard standing and tie-down areas. In addition, the amount of hangar space has more than doubled and a new elevated control tower and fire station constructed. Office facilities for rental, have also been added to accommodate complimentary on-site businesses.

These together with our new catering facility and efficient re-fuelling, provide a modern and attractive General Aviation terminal for the basing or stop-over for corporate or private aircraft.

As a winner of the AOA “Aerodrome of the Year Award”, our philosophy is to bring the service and standards of major airports to general aviation, without delays or added costs.
