Shobdon Airfirld

Herefordshire Aero Club

Located in the magnificent Marches near the border between England and Wales, Shobdon Airfield is the only licensed airfield in Herefordshire and has been the home of Herefordshire Aero Club
for more than 55 years. Formerly known as the Pembridge Landing Ground, the airfield has been in operation since 1941 with a fascinating wartime history when it was the base for No.5 Glider Training School. With its beautiful surrounding countryside and uncontrolled airspace, the area really is ideal for the flying enthusiast. Whether it’s a short stop for fuel and a bite to eat at the Hotspur Café, or a longer stay on our caravan park and camp site, you couldn’t find a better base for exploring this lovely county and its local natural wonders.
