PARKING AT THE AERODROME

THE easiest place to park is in the car park just North of the Aviator hotel entrance, next to the Sywell Aviation Museum. From here you can easily access the Aviator hotel's bar and restaurant, and watch the activities at the Aerodrome. Parking here, as with all of the car parks at the Aerodrome, is FREE.

To reach the 2Excel Training headquarters you may need to go through a secured gate onto the Aerodrome itself; please contact us in advance to get the gate code.

If if is late and the car park entrance gate is closed when you return to your vehicle, just drive slowly up to the exit gate (to the right of the gate you came in), it will open automatically to let you leave.
