There’s always something going on, with visiting and resident aircraft of all types arriving and departing. We have four Tiger Moths based at Henstridge, there are microlights, gyrocopters, the Yakovlev display team, and more. We are also home to the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance and various events throughout the year raise funds to help this worthy cause.

Henstridge airfield was originally a wartime Fleet Air Arm training site, designated HMS Dipper. After the war Henstridge was taken over by private individuals and  has been an active airfield in one form or another ever since!
