Things To Do At Sywell Aerodrome

VISIT THE SYWELL AVIATION MUSEUM: Sywell Aviation Museum (SAM) is a voluntary, non-profit-making organisation which aims to preserve the history of Sywell Aerodrome and Northamptonshire's rich aviation heritage from the early days of aviation to the Second World War and beyond. SAM began life in 1998 and the Museum building was opened in 2001 by the legendary aviator Alex Henshaw MBE
VISIT THE FLYING TIGERS HQ: We began a new era in the history of Flying Tigers when we opened the new business from our Sywell Aerodrome premises. Having an airfield location for a business like Flying Tigers is something unique in our industry and even though much of our business is conducted via the internet these days, we do hope to welcome many of you to our building at Sywell, which is conveniently located near the main airfield entrance.

STAY & EAT AT THE AVIATOR HOTEL: Wine and dine in the informal atmosphere of the Aviator's Restaurant. Themed in authentic Art Deco styling and overlooking the airfield, the Aviator is Northamptonshire's most unique dining experience. The Aviator Hotel and Hangar One can be found at Sywell Aerodrome
