Turweston celebrates twenty years of GA

Turweston will be celebrating its 20th anniversary of opening as a GA airfield with a fly-in.

A former WWII Wellington bomber OTU and gliding site, Turweston opened in 1994 as a dedicated GA airfield. It has developed since and now boasts 1,200m tarmac and 900m grass runways as well as increased hangarage. It is also home to the LAA.

The fly-in will take place on Saturday 6 September, and the organisers are encouraging visitors to bring photos of their trips to Turweston over the last twenty years.

There is a fixed £10 landing fee for all aircraft and 20% off everything purchased in the Flying Pig cafe, whether arriving by air or road. Pilots can PPR on 01280 705400 or visit Turweston’s website - www.turwestonflight.com
