Last Thursday the aerodrome got a royal seal of approval, when The Duke of Gloucester opened our 2nd Museum, Squadron 37.

Make sure you put a date in the diary to come down and check out all our volunteers hard work.


The aerodrome has also just recently been awarded a £5,500 grant from the linked Mike Williamson Memorial Fund and Yellow Car Charitable Fund, the Essex Community Foundation to support STEM activities.

The grant will allow the continuation of its STO-Kers club, which runs every first Saturday of the month from 10-3pm for children aged 8-14 years.
