The Aerodrome is officially open to visitors Saturdays and Sundays from 0900 to around 1700 hrs (sunset in winter).
Founded in 1960, the Waveney Flying Group leased the former
USAAFairbase from local farmers and went on to purchase the land in 1963. Its close proximity to Great Yarmouth meant it saw quite a bit of celebrity use in the 60s and 70s when stars such as The Hollies, The Rolling Stonesand Mike and Bernie Wintersdropped in. In latter years, the new millennium has seen both the club house and hangers developed culminating with their official opening by Wing Cdr. Ken WallisMBE in 2001.
