There are several areas at Turweston that are suitable for events. A separate entrance allows activities to take place independently of other business at the aerodrome and provides excellent branding opportunities.
Turweston is host venue to a number of fly-ins throughout the year, including several vintage and classic aircraft rallies.
We are sometimes fortunate enough to have impromptu fly-pasts too - have a look at this video and be sure to have the volume turned up to capture the sound of that Merlin engine!
The ex-British Airways Pilots pay us a visit every year, gathering in the café to have lunch and catch up with one another, there are club fly-ins, type fly-ins and AGMs - we have a conference room for these.
Charity Events, Corporate Entertainment, Education
We get involved in lots of different events, from Corporate Days to Camping Weekends.
We have an events area at the Aerodrome with grass and hard-standing and a dedicated events entrance which provide an ideal branding opportunity. It can be used to create an Event Village, for static shows or just for car parking.
At Turweston we are keen on supporting education from a young age and welcome the opportunity to get involved with local schools.
We were honoured to be the host venue for Dreamflight pre-trip meetings in 2015, 2016 & 17. Click on the link to see what this amazing charity does for deserving children. We are also involved with fly2help / Air Smiles (http://www.fly2help.org/) whose mission is to inspire change in people's lives through the wonder of flight.
Car Club Meets
Turweston Aerodrome is a great venue for static car club meets. We have ample parking space on hard-standing, easy access from the M40 and M1 and a great background for photographs. The vehicle parking/display area is close to the cafe and offers a great view of the runway. Please contact Tanya Coles to discuss arrangements for a club meet.
UK Cycling Events
UK Cycling Events (www.ukcyclingevents.co.uk) hold Cobbler and Wiggle events in Spring and Autumn from Turweston. Making use of our ample parking space, around 1000 cyclists participate in each event.
