I often visit Eshott and they are always incredibly friendly.

The air field has a great collection of vintage aircraft and RAF vehicles which is growing all the time.

I've always found the air field very accommodating and there arranged fly in events are fabulous. You can stay on site in tents under your aircraft wings or the staff can suggest the best local accommodation options for your visit.

The airfield has fuel facilities for all kinds of aircraft from small private aircraft to military helicopters.

The staff are incredibly skilled at everything they do with an amazing maintenance team, good hangar facilities and a nice catering team too.

If you are simply stopping off for fuel, just a coffee break or staying a few days Eshott's staff will help you out.

Friendly local airfield serving small plane owners, also assisting military and emergency service flights. Hosts enjoyable events, such as the Peaky Blinders evening in aid of military charity SAAFA, which I attended on 28th August 21, and Fly In events such as 30 Oct, open to the public and serving fish and chips.

Eshott Airfield is absolutely brilliant at what they do! Having started my flight training with them in April I've got nothing but positive words to say! My instructor is higly knowledgeable and patient in teaching and makes you feel completely at ease when learning scary thing in the air! I Honesty feel I couldn't be in safer hands at Eshott. The rest of the team are also extremely friendly and welcoming on every visit to the Airfield. Not to mention the amazing charity fundraising social events they put on, there 20's night blew all expectations. A truly wonderful team who put there all into everything they do at this Airfield!

This is one of the jewels in the crown of British General Aviation airfields. A fantastic, friendly and enthusiast staff, run by young people, inspiring STEM and promoting aviation in the region, including a healthy collection of vintage aircraft. The airfield has been brought up to a great standard with good hard runways and smooth grass runways available. Avgas and a nice cafe, I can’t recommend Eshott more!

The service this airfield offers to the emergency services and armed forces goes great lengths to demonstrate the requirement for such an airfield in the area!

Absolutely brilliant, keep up the good work.
