Visiting us

Skyward Flight Training is based at the historic Rougham Airfield, in the heart of the stunning Suffolk countryside.

Throughout the year, the airfield hosts a wide array of events, including food and crafts markets and historical car shows.

We are very accessible by road and are located just off the A14, only a couple of miles from the beautiful market town of Bury St. Edmunds.

If you plan to fly in, please note that we are PPR.

We look forward to welcoming you to Skyward Flight Training!

Travelling by car?

Rougham Airfield will soon be accessible via a new access road, which is nearing completion.  Until then:

Turn off the A14 at JUNCTION 45, east of Bury St Edmunds.

Follow signs to the Rougham Industrial Estate and Control Tower Museum along General Castle Way.

Turn left opposite Dixie’s Diner into Perkins Road.
Pass Thomas Ridley Cash and Carry on the left and enter the airfield gate facing you at the end of the road.

If the gates are locked, please telephone us.

Turn right on to the grass track northwards, passing the control tower museum.
