Lancashire Aero Club was established in 1922, is the oldest active flying club in the UK and possibly the world. It was based at Barton Aerodrome from 1947 until early 2007 but has now left for another venue, although we are actively seeking an airfield of our own.

Free landings for members (with a current yellow membership card)

The committee has negotiated a number of deals with airfields nearby which will give members free landings and in some cases discounted rates on fuel.

Airfield Concession
Bagby Free landing
Breighton Free landing
Caernarfon Free landing
Halfpenny Green  Free landing
Kirkbride Free landing
Nottingham (Tollerton) Free landing
Sherburn Free landing
Shobdon Free landing
Sywell Free landing
Tatenhill Free landing

A current membership card must be produced before payment to take advantage of these concessions. Please note that this arrangement is for one full-stop landing at a partner airfield per visit. "Touch-and-goes" are NOT covered by the landing card.

The arrangements with our partner fields are currently being renegotiated. In the interim members are advised to check with their destination that the landing card arrangement is still in force.

The committee would welcome feedback from members on the landings concessions and how they are operating, please send your views to the email address below.
