This purchase will earn you 12 Orbs!

Nestled in a valley on the eastern tip of the Isle of Wight in Southern England, flying in and out of Bembridge Airport ensures challenging landings over craggy cliffs and breathtaking views over the Solent and the English Channel.

Bembridge Airport was established on farmland in 1921 and was first used for airline flights throughout the next two decades by airlines such as Spartan Airlines, Portsmouth Southsea, Isle of Wight Aviation and Channel Air Ferries. When World War Two broke out the airport was closed and barricades were erected to prevent a potential airborne invasion. The Airport remained closed until 1946 when it was re-opened as a flying club. In the 1960’s Britten-Norman started manufacturing their famed Islander and Trislander aircraft at Bembridge, and their extensive factory complex still dominates the Northern part of the airport.

Today Bembridge buzzes with activity, especially during the summer months, as pilots fly in to stay on the picturesque island. It still serves as a hub for flying schools, vintage aircraft enthusiasts, and fly-ins, attracting a diverse range of aircraft from across the UK and beyond.
