Shuttleworth (Old Warden) is a private, unlicensed aerodrome, situated in a rural area. The airfield is not inspected daily and the manoeuvring area is uneven, so please exercise caution. Airfield Information can be obtained at NATS Aeronautical Information Service and NOTAMS.


All pilots use the aerodrome at their own risk and must PPR by clicking on the link below. If you do experience difficulties then call 01767 627 901. However, this telephone is not necessarily manned at all times.

Prior to booking PPR, it is assumed that the Shuttleworth terms and conditions (please read) are accepted.

Sunday, 25 July 2021:
As at 7th July 2021 The full length (799m) of the runway 02/20  is now available. The old College Road crossing the runway is now permanently closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic but remains physically in place for the time being. However, pilots should be alert for pedestrians and cyclists still crossing at this point due to ‘custom and practice’. The transition across the old College road is good on the runway portion but care is required when crossing the road on the taxiway.

Please Note: The airfield is closed to all visiting aircraft on 24th and 25th July due to a Model flying event and therefore PPR is not available for those two days

Please note: that you can only book up to 24hrs in advance; the slots are divided into half-hour sections with 6 slots in each half-hour and there is a maximum of 40 slots available per day. Therefore, although it may seem there is still capacity, we may already be full. Please enjoy your visit.

After making your booking, you will be directed to the Airfield Arrival Information Page along with a confirmation email. Please take careful note of all of the details in this page.
