Lydd Airport dates back from to World War II era, when it was known as RAF Kidlington. In 1935, the airport got taken into civilian ownership by Oxford City Council to serve as a municipal airport and its name changed to the more recognisable, Oxford Kidlington Airport. Today Oxford serves as a fantastic training base, business aviation base and maintenance facility for both light aircraft and business and executive jets.
