Redhill Aerodrome

Redhill Aerodrome was primarily used for private flying by the Redhill Flying Club when originally built in 1933. The original hangar is still standing on the site today as hangar 9. During WWII the aerodrome was used as a training establishment by the RAF and a base for spitfires. The flying club resumed flying post war and changed hands a few times before the current owners took over in 1991. Today the aerodrome is home to the air ambulance and police air service alongside offering flying experiences that can be booked on FlyDays.

Information About Redhill Aerodrome

Redhill Aerodrome is located 1.5 miles southeast of Redhill in Surrey. The aerodrome is only a short drive north from Gatwick Airport, which sits along the M25. Redhill has a range of commercial aviation activities, ranging from helicopter and fixed-wing charter services to flying training and aircraft maintenance.

In 1933, the Minister of Health granted the development of an already-built aerodrome called Hamme Farm. From this time, the Redhill Flying Club primarily used it for private flying. In 1937, the RAF Volunteer Reserve established a training school at Redhill, which was operated intensively leading up to and during the Second World War. Redhill became a fighter base with spitfires stationed throughout the war period. The school was renamed the ‘No15 Elementary Flying Training School RAF’ on 3 September 1939.

During 1947 and 1949, the British Air Transport LTD constantly used the aerodrome as a maintenance base for its charter operations at Croydon and Kenley Airports. During 1954 and into the 1980s, some of the buildings on the aerodrome were used by the Home Office to store “materials that may be necessary in case of national emergency”.

The flying club resumed flying post-war and changed hands a few times before the current owners took over in 1991. Today, the aerodrome is home to the air ambulance and police air service, alongside offering Flying Experiences that can be booked on FlyDays.

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