  • Platinum Jubilee

    1st Jun 2022

    The Queen's Platinum Jubilee 2022 As we near the Queen's Platinum Jubille this week we thought we would take a look back at when her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II & Prince Philip visited Sywell in July 1965. On arrival they were met by the Earl Spencer, the first President of the Northamptonshire Aero Club, and they travelled in an Andover of the Queen's flight. Unfortunately, on departure the aircraft had sunk a little in the soft grass requiring near full throttle before the aircraft lurched forward to taxi for take-off! We would like to Congratulate Her Majesty the Queen on her incredible milestone Platinum Jubilee, and we wish everyone a wonderful Jubilee weekend!

  • New Technology Park!

    9th Oct 2020

    Back in May 2019 a fire destroyed 88,800 sq.ft of factory, office and storage areas here at Sywell Aerodrome. Thanks to the great work of Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue, neighbouring Fire crews and our own in-house fire crew, the fire was contained to three interlinked units and did not spread to surrounding buildings. Now nearly eighteen months on, the site has been cleared and is ready for construction. Sywell Aerodrome is pleased to confirm that planning permission has been approved for a new “Technology Park” on the footprint of the site of the lost units.
