Why North Weald?
North Weald Flight Training is proud to operate airside at historic North Weald Airfield. Operating seven days a week this is the ideal place to learn to fly. You will find training with us is relaxed and a very enjoyable place to learn to fly and socialise. Friends and family are more than welcome to come along to watch and take pictures. Light refreshments and snacks are available.
North Weald Airfield is owned and operated by Epping Forest District Council. This ensures the airfield is maintained to the highest standards with full emergency services and its own control tower during operational hours.
We have the luxury of a large concrete runway running north/south (02/20) plus a grass runway for additional experiences for use in the summer months.
Having a network of paved taxiways and aircraft hard standings we are fortunate to be able to fly and operate throughout the winter months when many flying schools operating from grass runways cannot due to water logging and boggy runways. This can be frustrating as well as possibly having a negative impact on the continuity of your training with costly interruptions and delays.
Not only is North Weald Airfield our home but is also home to many aircraft types both fixed wing and rotary, new and old alike.
Spitfires, Hurricane’s, Mustang’s and many more classic aircraft can be regularly seen flying around the airfield, together with a whole range of light aircraft . The airfield is also the home to helicopters flying for Hertfordshire Air Ambulance and The National Police Air Service.
There are not many airfields where your flight training will be conducted alongside some of the most iconic aircraft to ever fly. North Weald really is an exciting and fun place to learn to fly. Why not come and visit us, have a look round and enjoy the hospitality of this historic setting. If you would like to discuss any aspects of training in detail and perhaps look at our aircraft then give us a call first so that we can ensure the availability of one of our experienced team.
