Aircraft Inbound PPR

Sywell Aerodrome (Northampton) is strictly PPR for all non based arriving aircraft.

PPR for visiting aircraft inbound arrivals can be requested using the inbound online PPR form below.

Please note Sywell Aerodrome is closed on Mondays (except home based), and open Tues-Sun 0900-1800 or SS whichever is earlier (local).

Sywell is not available for aircraft that require a Licensed Aerodrome.

Check this page for additional restrictions or closures.

PPR requests are monitored during operating hours Tuesday to Sunday, and periodically on Mondays. Once we have processed your request an email response will be sent either confirming or declining PPR. Please allow sufficient time for your PPR to be reviewed.

Any pilot that lands without PPR or ignores NOTAM will be barred from Sywell Aerodrome in the interests of safety.

Visiting aircraft do not need to submit a further departure PPR, as this information is optionally captured when you complete the Inbound PPR.

Aircraft arriving from Non Mainland UK must file a GAR.
This can be done directly at www.submit-general-aviation-report.service.gov.uk or via certain approved apps. Once you have submitted the GAR, please forward a copy of confirmation of submission when you submit your PPR to tower@sywellaerodrome.co.uk

From 6th April 2024, all GAR submissions are required to be submitted online within the required timeframe. Click here for details.

The local Border Force team can be contacted at LutonGeneralAviationTeam@homeoffice.gov.uk 

PPRs for these flights will not be granted until a GAR is confirmed as submitted.

(For 2Excel, Sloane and other Out of Hours departure requests, please click here to submit a departure only request.)


By submitting your PPR, you are confirming you are aware of, and will follow all applicable Aerodrome Procedures.
