Kemble airport renamed Cotswold airport
Loved it, my son was crew chief on F 15's years back.
Mainly microlights fly from here. Most of the old ww2 airfield is put over to Saturday and Sunday markets on the hardstanding of the old runways. One runway is used to park/store vehicles. The old control tower can still be seen tho dwarfed by a telephone mast.
Sywell has a great airshow every two years (next one 2014) and a excellent free admission aviation museum, open from march to October.
Learned to fly there in mid 70s. First to use first tar runway,m which we build with stones from the former railway line. Once you have soloed there no airfield will appear daunting, since the runmway is the worlds narrowest aircraft deck, which seldom points into wind. Still a great place to fly/soar/tour, all year round. Got my Gold height in Jnauary, Diamond in June, it really is all year soaring, but just a touch cool in winter
