We fly from two locations in Northamptonshire, Sywell and Turweston Aerodromes (Near Northampton & Brackley). Please scroll down the page to see both locations.
Northampton - Sywell Aerodrome
Sywell Aerodrome is our Northampton launch site and the perfect location to begin your own ballooning adventure. The 1930’s Art Deco Aviator Hotel, Bar & Restaurant, beautifully restored, offer a glimpse back into a bygone era of aviation. Drifting gently away from the airfield, the beautiful rolling rural landscape of Northamptonshire opens before you.
Northamptonshire is studded with Stately Homes and Country Houses notably Althorp House childhood home of Dianna Princes of Wales, Castle Ashby the ancestral home of the 7th Marquess of Northampton. Boughton House with its ancient tree lined avenues and Elizabethan Holdenby House, one time prison of Charles 1st.
Flying over the town of Northampton will take you over some magnificent sights, including its Grade 1 listed All Saints Church, rebuilt in 1680 following the Great Fire, its famous racecourse and also look out for Prebendal Manor from the sky and you might catch a glimpse of the largest recreated medieval gardens in Europe, and the lakes and waterways of Billing Aquadrome dotting the Nene valley are a great place to drift a tree top height.
