Derby Airfield is one of the newest airfields in the UK, the only one in Derbyshire. Built to replace Burnaston Airfield which was lost in 1990.
Planning permission for this site, which was farmland, took considerable effort and vast sums of money to obtain, allowing us to operate with very few conditions - however please DO NOT make it difficult for us by overflying the local villages, upsetting our neighbours and causing hassle which we could do without. Please call for PPR (as per UKAIP) and stick to the recommended circuit patterns (See website). These procedures also allow trouble free operation with East Midland's airspace in our vicinity.
See website listed for PPR and circuit paterns.
Bad flying spoils it for everyone - so please don't!!!Also note the runway distances - check before setting out that you and your aircraft is capable of safe operation from our airfield.
Remember PPR by telephone before departure is essential for up-to-date airfield information and so we can give you a verbal briefing about our noise abatement (good neighbour) policy.
Thank you for complying and we hope you will enjoy our wonderful little airfield.
