The home of the Spitfire Flying Club and many interesting privately owned vintage aircraft.  The airfield is open to the public every day and there is spectator seating.   Wiltshire Aircraft Maintenance have full workshop facilities on site.   Airbourne Aviation offer Microlight pilot training and "Air Experience" flights.  The Gyrocopter Experience offer Gyroplane training and "Air Experience" flights.  Popham is renowned as one of the best recreational airfields in the South of England.  The friendly atmosphere is commented on by many visitors and the opportunity to get close to aviation is hard to find in modern times.  There is free parking and free entry to all to the flying events listed in the calendar (except large exhibition events when an entry fee is payable).  All events are weather dependent.  Dogs are welcome at Popham but must be on a lead at all times. Children must be supervised by an adult and visitors are reminded not to touch any aircraft and remain clear of propellers at all times.
