ABOUT OLD SARUM

Old Sarum Airfield is one of the oldest continually operational airfields in the UK.

Built in 1917, for nearly 100 years it has played an important role in defending the United Kingdom, and in the development of British aviation and many of its related activities.

From its inception as a Training Depot Station during WWI until today, Old Sarum’s original flying field has been used continuously for aviation. This history, together with the three WWI grade 2* listed hangars, provide a unique setting for those visiting and using the airfield today.

Old Sarum is Wiltshire’s only licensed airfield and is the home to many resident aircraft (modern and historic), three flying schools and parachuting operations. Its popular Skies Café offers good food at a good price every day the airfield is open.

The airfield is also home to the Boscombe Down Aviation Collection and, in partnership with the airfield, its grade 2* listed hangar is now home to several historic flying aircraft.

99 years of aviation practice makes for the perfect place.
