Cotswold Airport – still refered to by pilots as ‘Kemble’ was opened for civilian flying by David Young in 1995 and he has been closely involved with its subsequent development – including helping to secure a High Court victory over its planning status. Pilots can literally fly at Kemble 24/7 !
For microlight pilots we can fly VFR (Visual Flight Rules) daylight which is half an hour before sunrise to half an hour after sunset.
The outstanding facility has a 2009m long runway, 45m wide, which is just fantastic for early training. Then we have a 550m grass strip to tune students up for strip flying. The recently re-named airport, Cotswold Airport, sits in a great location for flying training surrounded by open countryside and with access to airspace up to 10,000ft!
