Information About White Waltham Airfield

White Waltham Airfield is home to the West London Aero Club and is one of the oldest airfields in the country. Based near Maidenhead in Surrey, the Airport is easily accessible from Central London and is also easily accessible from Slough, Reading and Windsor from the M4 motorway.

1928, the de Havilland family acquired the land and formed the de Havilland School of Flying, which opened in 1935. The MOD requisitioned it for use during World War II, and in 1940, it became the HQ for the Air Transport Auxiliary, whose members were responsible for delivering all aircraft to and from RAF stations.

On 29 September 1945, the ATA staged a unique Air Display and Air Pageant, which was opened by Lord Beaverbrook and featured a static park of Allied German aircraft. After the war, the airfield was used by Fairey Aviation - A British aircraft manufacturer of the first half of the 20th century based in Hayes. A few years later, Westland Helicopters used the site to assemble and test aircrafts built at their Hayes factory in Middlesex. These included Fairey FB-1 Gyrodyne and Fairey Ultralight.

Prince Phillip and the Duke of Edinburgh were taught to fly here at White Waltham in 1952, flying a de Havilland Chipmunk - A two-seat, single-engine trainer aircraft owned by HQ RAF Home Command Communications Squadron of the Royal Air Force. The airfield is now under new ownership and has become the base of the Thames Valley and Chiltern Air Ambulance helicopter.

For those who fancy themselves as daredevils, why not look at our range of Acrobatic Flying Experiences. Feel the adrenaline as you loop through the sky over the largest grass airfields in the UK. View Surrey and the neighbouring countryside of Berkshire from above with one of our adrenaline-filled Flying Experiences.

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