Flight Training

Our 1965 metre runway and low level of air traffic movements make Cambridge City Airport the perfect place to practice touch-and-go landings.

This is a valuable tool allowing trainee pilots to practice the many elements of flying a good approach without incurring the time and expense of taxiing back for every repetition. Making the landing itself, a touch-and-go allows many more repetitions of the approach and landing procedures per hour flown.
