I had the choice of three clubs to continue my flying. I am so glad I chose Compton Abbas. The staff and instructors are friendly and professional and the venue is a stunning location to watch the flying while enjoying a coffee or meal.

I learned to fly at Compton fifteen years ago and always enjoy returning to fly, watching the many aircraft movements and enjoying the great food. This must be one of the best airfield experiences in the UK.
