Welcome to Henstridge Airfield….

A friendly general aviation airfield near Wincanton, Somerset.

What is Henstridge?

Henstridge airfield is not only a busy hub for pilots and flying students,  it is also host to numerous other events throughout the year. There’s vintage car and ‘plane days, car boot sales, charity events and much much more!

What happens here?

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.

The Clubhouse:

There’s a lively club atmosphere at weekends and visitors are very welcome by air, car or motorcycle.  At weekends hot food is available including Chilli-con-carne, curries, sandwiches and Geoff’s famous breakfast fry-up. Feeling brave? Try Geoff’s Big Breakfast Challenge!  The kitchen is open 10.00-2.00, at all other times snacks, confectionery, ice-creams and Tea/Coffee  are available.

Sunday Lunch:

There’s usually a crowd in for Sunday lunch, even when the weather’s no good for flying. Geoff creates a “Sunday Special” set menu, alongside the usual choices. Click here for details. Booking advisable..All meat produce is sourced locally from a family butcher, including prime joints and delicious home-made sausages, burgers and faggots!

Potted history of the airfield:

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! You can see more of the airfield’s fascinating past in the history section in the drop-down menu.
