Information About Eaglescott Airfield

Nestled in the heart of the Devonshire countryside, Eaglescott Airfield is one of the more recent airfields on our books here at FlyDays - comparatively so, anyway, to the ones that had their roots in pre-war times. Founded in 1983 by local flying enthusiast and aviator Barry Pearson, Eaglescott was quickly established as the new home of the North Devon Flying Club.

Barry still has an active role in the running of the airfield to this day, and such is his passion for aviation that his late parents, who supported him in his enthusiasm, were buried under a plum tree in a garden area of the airfield after they passed away. A year after opening the premises, he established Devon Airsports Ltd, with his aim to make all sorts of flying and aviation available for others to enjoy.

Today, the airfield still operates as a non-profit organisation and community amateur sports club, offering the people of Devon the opportunity to enjoy and learn to fly on a vast selection of aircraft, but which provides a safe environment for them to do so - and being right out in the countryside makes this possible, with a 600 x 20 metre grass runway.

Most who train to fly here have subsequently become active club members and aviators. It is also the northerly operational base for the Devon Air Ambulance, who have their own hangar on a gifted lease of part of the airfield. And as you’ll discover, the range of aircraft that is on offer to learn to fly at Eaglescott is quite astounding.

Vintage Aircraft at Eaglescott

Some stunning aircraft from previous golden ages of flying are waiting to take to the skies in at Eaglescott. This includes a Pitt S1S, a Tiger Moth, a Yak 50 and an Archer.

Once airborne, you’ll get a taste of nostalgic civil aviation and learning to operate these heritage machines - it may even develop a new found interest in classic aircraft you never knew you had in you.

Coastal Aviation Tours

The airfield also has the opportunity to explore Devon’s stunning North and South coast lines by air, with their Coastal Aviation tours, both of which have some incredible sights to see from up in the air.

The Southern tour will take you off towards Tavistock, along the Western side of Dartmoor, as you take off towards the docklands at Plymouth, and the pretty seaside towns of Torquay and Dawlish before you return to base via the Eastern side of Dartmoor.

The Northern tour heads for the famous castle at Dunster, before reaching the coast at Minehead, up along towards Hartland Point and Bude before returning to Eaglescott. Each tour is two and a half hours of unforgettable flying time.
