Wolverhampton Halfpenny Green Airport is not only a flourishing centre for aviation, it also offers companies a superb location in which to base their business.
Originally built as an aerodrome for the Royal Air Force and opening in 1941, the airport now provides a thriving base for a number of general aviation operators and maintenance providers including: aircraft and helicopter flying schools, several private aircraft operators and various non-aviation based tenants. Ideally positioned in the centre of the UK, the airport is only seven miles to the south west of Wolverhampton and 20 miles from Birmingham.
With hard and grass runways, the aerodrome is ideal for flying training and hosts four fixed wing training schools, a helicopter school, an autogyro supplier and a microlight school. Each of these offer trial flying lessons so you can get a feel of what learning to fly is all about.
