Leicester Airport is an aerodrome located in Leicestershire, under 6 miles away from Leicester City. The airfield was originally built in 1942 as part of the old RAF Leicester East station and prior to 1947 was named Stoughton Aerodrome. The airport is now home to Leicestershire Aero Club that celebrated their 100th year at the aerodrome in 2009. The aero club now offers flying lessons and experiences flying over local landmarks like Silverstone Circuit, Belvoir Castle and the city's football and rugby stadiums.
