What is available to you...


At our airport we offer both Avgas and Jet A1. We have two fuel bowsers allowing us to deliver the fuel directly to where you have parked without the need for queuing or delay.

Aircraft hangarage

Our aircraft hangars are some of the best in general aviation. They are robust and secure with 24/7 security and CCTV located in every hangar. Our trained ramp team can have your aircraft tugged out and on a stand before you arrive with only 1 hours notice.

Outside parking

We have the best of both worlds. Here we have the facility to park aircraft both on grass and tarmac. For no extra cost we have chocks placed strategically throughout the airport for you to use.

Fire cover

We offer Category 1 fire cover and Category 2 upon request and 3 upon remission. Our RFFS team receive up to date training from the International Fire Training Centre in Teeside. We do this to provide the highest possible standards in our emergency response.

The Apron Café and Bakery offers locally sourced, high quality seasonal ingredients to bring new and inventive menus to the table each week. All of our dishes and bakery items are made fresh daily for your enjoyment. Find out more here.

Customer Testimonials


Ian Gough

Visiting pilot

Absolutely amazing experience. Had a half hour "trial lesson" in a small plane. Recommended for anyone who's OK with heights/flying. We flew over my house etc, got some epic photos.
