Sherburn Aero Club opened its doors in 1964 and went on to become one of the largest flying clubs in the North of England and also one of largest in the country. The flying club opened it's flight training school in the 1970's which was followed by a number of major investments including a large fleet of new aircraft and an airfield refurbishment with new runways, hangars and an extended club house.
We welcome all visitors to Sherburn Aero Club, whether you are members or not. We take pride in being an important landmark for Sherburn in Elmet and our local community. We have family friendly space inside and out of the club house and welcome our visitors to come and enjoy our facilities.
Being a flying club and a flight training school we are well positioned to cater for our members, their friends and families before, during and after they become a qualified pilot. Our aim is to give all of our members a fun social environment whilst providing the opportunity to continue to build on their experience and expand their horizons.
Whether you are taking to the skies for an experience flight; starting your flying career; have your own aircraft and are looking for hangarage, servicing or repairs; buying a new aircraft, looking for aviation equipment or gifts or just looking to enjoy some refreshments from our restaurant and bar and watch the aircraft, Sherburn has it all to offer.

We hope our website will provide you with valuable information and we look forward welcoming you to the club and being part of your aviation adventures.
