Situated in the quiet Cambridgeshire village of Little Gransden, Little Gransden Airfield is half an hour away from Cambridge and just 20 minutes away from the market town of St Neots, and is based in the grounds of Fuller's Hill Farm.
Comprising primarily grass runways, it is on one of these (Runway 28) that you will be able to see the remains of the runways from when the site was RAF Tempsford, a top secret airfield that was operated by the Special Operations Executive during World War II.
Aside from this bit of hidden history, for those who are looking for some fantastic Flying Experiences in the East of England, Little Gransden offers plenty for light aviation enthusiasts. For starters it's one of 20 locations across the UK that offers Microlighting Lessons.
Run and approved by the British Microlight Aircraft Association, on either a 30 minute or 60 minute session you'll get to experience taking the controls on either a fixed wing or flexi-wing aircraft. But there's also the opportunity to go chocks away on a 30 minute flying lesson in a traditional fixed wing aeroplane if you don't fancy being exposed to the elements whilst mid-air!
And if you'd prefer being down on the ground instead, then back on terra firma, there are a selection of exciting Flight Simulator packages that are available to book, as you take on piloting a fighter jet Top Gun style. Perfect for tapping into your inner Maverick!
