Welcome to Shobdon Airfield
Shobdon Airfield – located in the magnificent Marches on the England Wales borders – the only licensed airfield in Herefordshire and home of Herefordshire Aero Club for over 50 years. Formerly the Pembridge landing ground, Shobdon Airfield has been in operation since 1941 with a fascinating wartime history as a glider training base. Great flying country – free from controlled airspace, a brilliant fuel and food stop on the way north/south or to the wonderful Welsh countryside and just a short flight across to the coast. Come and visit us by road or air – we have ample car and visiting aircraft parking – and enjoy a very warm welcome, with lots to see.
The Shobdon Cafe, open 7 days a week, serves a great selection of homemade food – from the traditional pilot’s all day breakfast to daily specials to enjoy inside or out. Our outside seating area gives you a great view of aircraft of all descriptions landing and taking off.
On holiday in the area? How many airfields do you know that boast a caravan and camp site? Static vans for hire, tourers are welcome and if canvas is your thing – come pitch your tent with us! Great facilities – and a dream come true for aviation enthusiasts! If you fancy taking to the skies, book a trial lesson in one of our Club aircraft – you can book on line today.
