Located in the magnificent Marches near the border between England and Wales, Shobdon Airfield
is the only licenced airfield in Herefordshire and has been the home of Herefordshire Aero Club
for more than 55 years.
Formerly known as the Pembridge Landing Ground, the airfield has been in operation since 1941
with a fascinating wartime history when it was the base for No.5 Glider Training School.
With its beautiful surrounding countryside and uncontrolled airspace, the area really is ideal for
the flying enthusiast. Whether it’s a short stop for fuel and a bite to eat at the Hotspur Café,
or a longer stay on our caravan park and camp site, you couldn’t find a better base for exploring
this lovely county and its local natural wonders.
Herefordshire Aero Club and the Hotspur Café are open seven days a week throughout the year
with a warm welcome for visitors arriving by air or by road. With a wide range of activities
involving fixed wing aircraft, microlights, gliders and helicopters, there is usually something to see.
For anyone who has not already experienced the thrill of flying for themselves, Herefordshire Aero
Club has a fully trained team of enthusiastic instructors available to take you up, up and away
for a trial lesson in one of our club aircraft.
Moving forward from the trial flight Herefordshire Aero Club offers a range of flight training courses
to get you airborne, be it for pleasure or as a starting point for a career in aviation.
