Lydd airport, Kent
Lydd Airport is Go Fly Oxfords’ second base. Here we undertake mainly the commercial training, CPL, IR and MEP courses, but also do PPL and Hours Building from Lydd too. We have a Piper fleet based at Lydd, with the PA-28 warrior/Cherokee and the PA-28 arrow, with plans to add a Piper Seneca later this year. Lydd offers easy access to most of the south of UK by air and also North West Europe, with France being only a 30 minute flight away. Lydd is located very close to the towns of Ashford, Maidstone, Canterbury and Dover and is located just off the M20 so is easily accessible from London, Essex and Surrey by Road and has nearby rail links to London and Brighton.
Lydd offers trainee pilots the opportunity to learn with full Air traffic control facilities available with both a Tower and Approach service. Lydd also offers a full ILS and instrument approach and holds so is the perfect location to do your instrument rating course.
Lydd Airport dates back from the early 1950’s and was built post second World War, predominately as a cargo airfield, with its early popularity being as a base for many car-carrying air ferry companies, to fly peoples’ cars over to France. Lydd is now mainly a GA dominated airfield, but jets and airlines can be seen flying from the airport also, making it an exciting location to do your training at.
