Located near Keswick in UK, the Flight Park provides tandem flights, ab initio training, outdoor adventures and has a lovely cafe bistro. Magical, sophisticated and most of all, fun !

 

LOCATION

The Flight Park is located on the flat pastures between Bassenthwaite Lake and Derwent Water, on the outskirts of Keswick town and on the edge of Braithwaite village, which is perfectly placed in the sea breeze convergence alley for pilots travelling south from Skiddaw to Catbells and back.

From our large window we can see 10 flying sites (Skiddaw, Jenkin, Blease, Latrigg, Clough Head) all of which are within a 20 minute drive.

 

WINCH & TOWING

Microlights, helicopters and sail planes have all landed in our large flat grass field. Our longest runway is 400m and takes a Northwest / Southeast wind direction.

Our Southwest / Northeast runway is 300m long. We have a permit to tow upto 200ft AGL (Mon-Fri) and 2000ft (Sat-Sun and bank holidays). For visiting pilots, we provide a taxi and retrieve service.
