Compton Abbas Airfield is well known as being one of the friendliest and most picturesque airfields, not just in the UK, but around the world. This reputation makes us a popular retreat for everyone; from pilots flying in for some lunch, students learning to fly with us, and members of the public who are looking for a great day out – with good food, fantastic views and perhaps a flight in one of our aircraft! Situated at 800ft above sea level we have spectacular views across an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The airfield restaurant and fully licensed bar is open for 360 days of the year, providing home style breakfasts, morning snacks, lunches and afternoon tea. The large outside terrace area sits adjacent to the runway with a brilliant viewpoint for all the flying activity.
