Airfield Info

Duxford airfield
Historic IWM Duxford remains a working airfield to this day. During operating hours, a small team of professional air traffic controllers working from the Second World War control tower provides a Flight Information Service to IWM Duxford-based aircraft. It’s a great place to learn with long grass and tarmac runways, a great easy to find location and a wealth of aviation history.
