Headcorn Aerodrome/Lashenden Museum & Tiger Club

Headcorn Aeodrome (Lashenden) has a fascinating history, including a role in First World War training and then as a base for the Canadian Air Force from 1943.

 

More recently the airfield has developed a range of leisure and pleasure flying activities for everyone to enjoy.  This includes parachuting, hot air ballooning and experience flights.

 

On 22nd June 2014 Lashenden launched a new venture, providing a fantastic trio of experience flights, in a Tiger Moth, Harvard and Spitfire.  

 

For full details of all the activities follow the links to the Headcorn Aerodrome website.
