Thruxton airport is situated 5 miles west of Andover just off the A303. There is one hard runway and a grass runway situated inside the Thruxton Race Circuit. Having the benefit of a hard runway there is never a problem getting in and out of Thruxton – however long or however hard it rains – so it is ideal as a base, particularly for heavier twin engined aircraft. We have an extension to the runway up to 820mtrs.
