STEEPED IN HISTORY

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.
