CORONAVIRUS INFORMATION (updated 21/01/2021)

Covid-19 precautions are still severely affecting operations, and there is very limited availability of bookings for Trial Lessons. We recommend that you contact us in spring to make a booking.

(Vouchers which expire(d) after 1st March 2020, will automatically be extended by 12 months to the same date a year later. Please note your voucher accordingly.)

Vouchers are available to purchase, but it will not be possible to use the voucher until restrictions are reduced. Please contact us for advice before purchasing a voucher.

We regret that we are able to accept visitors only by arrangement. Please contact us for advice before coming to the airfield.

Visit us at Shalbourne and share the thrill of flying over one of England's most beautiful downland sites. We are located close to the point where Wiltshire meets Berkshire & Hampshire, 4 miles south of Hungerford, midway between Marlborough, Newbury and Andover.

Weather permitting, we meet at Rivar Hill for flying on weekends, bank holidays and most Wednesdays. Just come along sometime, and we'll fit in your initial trial lesson as quickly as we can, starting from just £45*

* Payment by cash or cheque; regrettably we cannot process cards at the airfield.
