Hibaldstow Airfields History

Commissioned on May 12, 1941, No. 255 Squadron RAF established its presence with Boulton Paul Defiant night fighters. By 1941, they transitioned to Bristol Beaufighter IIFs, and on September 23, 1941, No. 253 Squadron from RAF Skeabrae joined them. Facing imminent closure at the outset of 1943 due to the ongoing threat of night attacks by the Luftwaffe, the airfield resumed operations a few months later to house No. 53 Operational Training Unit RAF, only to close again in May 1945. Finally, on August 6, 1947, the station ceased operations. In 1960, the site was repurposed for agricultural use and later served as a venue for Sunday Markets, a skid-pan facility by Lincolnshire Police, and a base for a local parachute club.

The parachute club continues to operate there, offering skydiving experiences and courses since 1992. As one of the largest civilian dropzones, it regularly hosts the British National Championships.

Terms and Conditions for Hibaldstow Airfield

Once you order a voucher, it will be dispatched by one of our agency partners by e-voucher or by post, depending on which you choose when you checkout.

Vouchers are valid until the expiry date shown on your Voucher (typically 10-12 months).

In most cases, once you activate your voucher you will be sent the instructions to redeem the voucher directly with the airfield or operator. Because flying experiences (other than simulators) can only take place in suitable/ safe weather conditions, you must be prepared to be flexible on your activity date. If the agent or operator cancels your experience date, they will inform you as soon as possible and do their very best to offer an alternative date or location. Once a specific date has been booked, you will automatically become bound by the terms and conditions that the individual operator may have. This does not affect your statutory rights.

Whilst every effort is made to ensure the descriptions contained on our products are a true reflection of the experience, these do not form part of a contract. If on contacting the operator you feel that the activity taking place no longer accurately represents the activity purchased, the relevant agent will exchange the voucher or refund the purchase price.
