Description

FLY OUT OLD SARUM

The Old Sarum Airfield website boasts history, fun, adventure and one of the warmest welcomes in the UK, so as a new destination for a Take Flight Fly-Out, it must be worth a visit!

The 102-year-old airfield operations include a flying training school, a skydive centre and microlight schools. There’s an aviation museum opened in Hangar 1 where the Boscombe Down Aviation Collection relocated from the nearby Boscombe Down airfield.
Old Sarum is probably the best-preserved flying field of the World War I period. It is bounded by one of the most complete suites of technical and hangar buildings of the period. The site has three Grade II listed hangars, a Grade II listed former workshop, and a Grade II listed former Station Headquarters. The airfield was designated as a conservation area by Salisbury District Council in February 2007.

The well-kept 781 grass strip this airfield is located approximately 3 miles north of Salisbury where you can explore the Old Sarum Hill Fort, the site of the earliest settlement of Salisbury in England. Located on a hill about 2 miles north of modern Salisbury near the A345 road, the settlement appears in some of the earliest records in the country. It is an English Heritage property and is open to the public and a 5-minute taxi ride or 25-minute walk.

The prehistoric Stonehenge is also nearby as is Salisbury Cathedral with Britain’s tallest spire and home of the best-preserved Magna Carta both a 15-minute taxi ride from the airfield and well worth a visit.
