The airfield will be open to visiting pilots normal hours, Wednesday to Sunday from May 28th (including Thursday evenings until 8pm). Closed Monday & Tuesday.
The café is serving a limited menu to be delivered to our picnic benches and picnic area below the tower. We would encourage you to bring some chairs or a blanket to sit on as benches are limited, but space is not. You may also bring your own picnic if you prefer.
AvGas is available at £1.75 per litre and air/ground radio and fire service are operating. All sensible social distancing measures are encouraged, including the use of contactless payment (please avoid cash).
Updated government coronavirus advice means that recreational GA flying is now allowed. You will see a slight increase in traffic from Leicester as privately owned aircraft return to flight. The club fleet and all training will remain suspended until further guidance is issued.
Due to Government restrictions, Leicester Airport is closed to all visitors. All
recreational flying, flying experiences and training have been suspended. The airfield will remain unlicenced with no emergency response or air/ground radio.
Only limited staff will be on-site for security and administration purposes.
