Flying at Little Gransden Airfield and Gransden Lodge Airfield

– Private flying and Gliding

Little Gransden is adjacent to the Fullers Hill Cottages, far from a busy airfield this provides the perfect base from which to plan and undertake flying tours of England and maybe the odd trip to the Continent. There are local airshows, museums (Duxford 12 miles and Old Warden’s Shuttleworth collection 8 miles) and places to visit, including the coast.

The airfield is home to many historic aircraft types including Boeing Stearman, Waco, Stampe, Tiger Moth, Mono Coupe and the only two Spartan Executives outside of the USA.
