VAWC 2022

Aug 18-21

VAWC 2022
Breighton UK

Breighton Airfield was a Second World War heavy bomber base and cold-war nuclear missile launch site but is now home to the historic aircraft collection of the Real Aeroplane Company and the Real Aeroplane Club, an active flying club whose members own and operate many unusual, classic and ex-military aircraft.

The airfield is open to flying visitors throughout the year. It has a single grass runway 10/28 which is 802 metres (2,631′) long. Self-service Avgas and Jet A1 is available and a café operates at weekends serving hot/cold food, drinks and snacks. Please see our Breighton Airfield page for IMPORTANT AIRFIELD PROCEDURES, WEATHER and WEBCAMS.

Full Flying Membership of the Real Aeroplane Club is a requirement for aircraft owners and pilots based at Breighton. Aircraft owners and pilots not based at Breighton can also join as an Associate Flying Member. There’s even a level of membership specifically for non-pilots which is generally referred to as Museum Membership (or Social Membership) – this is ideal for aviation enthusiasts and budding photographers. Full details on how to join the club are available on our Real Aeroplane Club page.

The Real Aeroplane Company historic aircraft collection consists of a number of interesting historic and classic aircraft. Probably the most charismatic of these is the Aeronca 100, first registered in March 1937 and affectionately known as ‘Jeeves’ (in recognition of its registration G-AEVS). This aircraft was the first of many restoration projects undertaken by the RAC and has therefore earned pride of place on our logo.

Many of the Company’s aircraft can be seen at airshows and events up and down the country during the summer.
