Please call before visiting to check we aren't away flying!

Based next to Silverstone race circuit at Turweston aerodrome the area offers some fantastic flying countryside visually and it is rich in aviation and motorsport history.

We want you to have the best flying experience with the focus on getting people airborne either via a selection of introductory flights (which guarantee you'll be thrilled and left wanting to do more) or, if you already know you want to learn how to fly, you can attend our flying school. Both are superb fun, its just the focus is different.

The Gyrocopter is the most fun of all sport aviation, its just like a flying superbike!

Within reach of an hours flight we have sites that saw the birth of Radar, Britain's rocket test centre, a nuclear strike airbase, development sites for the Harrier 'jump jet', Britian's first operational jet, the Gloster Meteor and ejection seats.

We also have all of the global motorsport hot spots that include Silverstone F1 venue, Mercedes, Red Bull, Force India and Renault F1 teams, Rockingham Oval... It just goes on and on...
