The government has issued new guidelines for General Aviation: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-recreational-general-aviation/coronavirus-covid-19-recreational-general-aviation

Turweston Aerodrome is therefore open for flying under the conditions given below. 

Update: from Tuesday 14th July 2020 it is mandatory to wear a face covering (except where medically exempt) while in the Tower building.

Since 23rd March 2020 (the start of ‘lockdown’) Turweston Flight Centre Ltd has been rigorously following government and CAA guidelines for businesses and individuals. We will continue to do so throughout the lockdown exit.

Our priority is the safety and wellbeing of our staff and customers. We are doing all we can to reduce the risk of infection with the Covid 19 virus. Please help us by complying with all instructions and requests from our Company and staff.

We are very keen to welcome everyone back and ask that you bear with us as we all adjust to a new way of working.
