Northumberland’s Eshott Airfield

Welcome to Eshott Airfield, Northumberland’s Regional Airport.

We pride ourselves on being Northumberland’s main aerodrome with tarmac runways and planning permission for 70 aircraft. Visitors are welcome to come and take advantage of our facilities and can be sure of a warm reception.

We cater for all kinds of private aircraft from twin engines to microlights and helicopters.

With both communal and single hangarage available and with on site inspectors, engineers and flying schools, we are ideally suited for students, pilots and enthusiasts.


Flying from Eshott started in November 1942 when the airfield was developed as a training facility for Spitfire Aircraft; at this time some 2000 people were accommodated on the site.

Over the years most of the war-time facilities have been removed but the original runways remain and have been resurfaced for private flying.

In addition to the runways there are hangars which now accommodate a wide variety of aircraft.

The airfield is now the home for over 50 aircraft and accommodates a clubhouse building, parking, and several hangar blocks. The club is made up of members of all ages and backgrounds but everyone is linked by a keen interest in aircraft and flying. At weekends the clubhouse is bustling with members and visitors.

It is also the home of Purple Aviation the number one centre for flying training in Newcastle and Northumberland.
