Information About Perranporth Airfield

Fancy adding a thrill to your holiday, or do you live nearby? Welcome to Perranporth Airfield, based at Cornwall's only tarmac-surfaced General Aviation airfield. Located 1.5 miles southwest of Perranporth and 6 miles southwest of Newquay in Cornwall.

On 28 April 1941, RAF Perranporth was kicked into operation and was used by 21 different squadrons flying Spitfires during this time and was at its busiest in 1943. The 330-acre airfield was built as an RAF Fighter Command station during the Second World War. The airfield offers the opportunity to have a look around/ see examples of Second World War bunkers and air-raid shelters.

In 1945/6, the airfield was decommissioned as it is now a privately owned airfield for small aircraft and gliders. In 2002, a large-scale archaeological survey was undertaken by staff from the English Heritage office.

Sitting along the beautiful Cornish coast, spectacular views can be seen from the air and the ground. Now home to Perranporth Flying Club, you can take to the skies yourself in a Microlight or Piper Cherokee plane Flying Experience.

Please remember that Flying Experiences are dependent on weather conditions so at times may need to be rescheduled.
