  • "This place is truly one-of-a-kind"

    You literally get to sit and have lunch adjacent to an active airfield. It's exactly as cool as it sounds!

    Nick Smith, Weymouth

  • "Loving It!!!"

    Brilliant place to learn to fly, eat, drink or just hang out. All the staff are really friendly, helpful and sincere. Mid-PPL and loving it!!!

    Martin Childs, Wareham

  • "Thank You!"

    Just a quick note to thank you for the service today when we called in. What a fabulous change to come across a happy, vibrant and cheerful bunch of people. I'm looking forward to returning.

    Jeff, Cotswold Helicopters

  • "This is what it's all about!"

    With stunning scenery, this active and vibrant airfield made a very good impression to my guest of what private aviation and getting a PPL is all about.

    David, Kemble
