About Us

Thruxton is situated just off the A303 approximately 5 miles west of Andover on the Hampshire/Wiltshire border. We provide a virtual Private Pilots License and Flying club like experience. The airfield boasts both grass and asphalt runways so we are not too hampered in the winter. Members have the option to simply enjoy our routes available or take full advantage of our simulated flight training.

We provide virtual training for both experienced pilots and beginners alike. 

Our dedicated team of instructors have many hours of virtual and real world flying experience. They will guide you through your virtual training at your own pace.

To take advantage of our training, pilots must be a member of Western Air Virtual.
