Friends of Sywell Aerodrome

The Friends of Sywell Aerodrome (FOSA) has been established to promote and preserve this historic site and to make the flying community and its events accessible to a wider and more diverse audience.

Sywell has been an important centre for aviation for over 85 years, and attracts flying enthusiasts across a wide spectrum of interests, from conventional light aircraft to microlights and gliders. Many enthusiasts also come to Sywell because of its historic links to the Second World War and the important role it played in pilot training and in the building and servicing of bomber aircraft.

  • To preserve General Aviation at Sywell
  • To preserve and promote the history of Sywell
