About Us


Welcoming visitors by land and air since the 1960s

Wickenby Aerodrome has been an active airfield since the 1960s, and was used as a satellite station for operations by Lancaster Squadrons 12 and 626 during World War Two. RAF Wickenby was a purpose built bomber base constructed in late 1942 and early 1943. It had two T2 type hangars and one B1 type. The B1 and one of the T2 hangars can still be seen on the airfield site.

Today Wickenby is a busy GA Aerodrome with a bright and optimistic future. Post-CoVid, work is already under way to totally reconfigure the cafe – a vital part of any GA airfield. Our resident Flight School is enthusiastically providing SEP and Microlight training, with an increasing student base.

Come and see us.

Hangarage and Membership

Hangarage. We offer a variety of different options for hangarage. Our hangars are securely locked after hours and covered by CCTV. Outside parking and grass tie downs are also available.

Membership. All pilots flying aircraft based at Wickenby are required to become members. Please contact us for further details.


We normally offer both AVGAS 100LL and JET A1 at Wickenby. Regretfully JET A1 is not currently available for technical reasons

During operating hours (currently 10am-4pm Wed-Sat), AVGAS is normally available on a self service pump that accepts most major credit cards.

When available, Jet A1 is supplied via a bowser, allowing us to deliver fuel directly and efficiently to your aircraft.

Safety Management System

Wickenby Aerodrome takes the safety of our Members, Employees and Visitors very seriously.

Safety Reporting Forms (SRF) are available in the hangars and offices (or you can download one here). If you see a dangerous incident or spot a potential risk, you are encouraged to complete a SRF and post it into the box supplied, or return it direct to the offices. This can be completely anonymous if you prefer.

Safety is everyone’s responsibility and your input will be presented to airfield management as soon as possible.

An Emergency Defibrillator is mounted to the external wall of the main Operations Offices landside door. No key or code is required.

For more information or PPR

PPR is normally only required for non-radio aircraft – which must obtain a telephone briefing before departure. It is also required if your flight needs a Licensed runway.
