Donating again as this is a cause we have to win as Wellesbourne can’t be lost to developers for housing. With the latest encouraging update from SDC, and with a good pilot, careful planning and steady nerve, we’ll get through the storm and turbulence ahead and into sunny weather so assuring Wellesbourne as a centre for GA activity bringing life, pleasure and vitality to the local community.

The Airfield, the Restaurant and OnTrack Aviation all get my support. Good legal representation is necessary to oppose unprincipled but well financed developers and an ill-informed judiciary.
Wellsbourne, like many other GA Airfields under threat of development, needs to be saved to protect flight training and aviation-related jobs. Hangar Homes can co-exist with this and would help to safeguard the airfield and make it more sustainable.
Wellesbourne is a great GA destination - amongst the very best in the UK - and a thriving place of flying activities. We often fly there with our folding bikes and then visit nearby Compton Verney. Always a friendly and efficient welcome. The desire for huge property-related earnings against all the plans and wishes of the local population and their representatives must not be permitted to close an exemplar airfield.
All airfields should be protected for the future. Too many have already been lost. Wellesbourne in particular is an excellent facility and should be kept for aviation
Wellesbourne is an active airfield in a central location in the country and it should be protected and supported in continuing its valuable work in all areas of aviation.
We NEED to fight this potential closure otherwise it sets a very dangerous precedent for all our little airfields around the country. Good luck Wellesbourne; I’ll follow your progress with great interest.......
Great place for GA. Too many are being lost to development. Places like this bring joy to all and all ages including non flyers. A lot more joy than another development will.
I did my helicopter instructor course at Wellesbourne in 2006 and I am aiming to do my fixed wing instructor course there in 2019. It is the best airfield in the UK and needs to remain. Graham Barral
