Carlisle Lake District Airport is conveniently located just 6 miles east of Carlisle City and the M6 (J43 or J44) and is the gateway to the Lake District National Park, the Pennines, South West Scotland and Border regions.
With two paved runways, and operated with a Civil Aviation Authority Public Use Licence, the airport provides a thriving base for a number of general aviation flying schools and an aircraft maintenance facility.
We cater for all kinds of private aircraft from gyroplanes and micro-lights through to helicopters and larger business jets; as well as many military aircraft movements. We offer all the usual services required for such operations.
Only 20 miles north east of the Lake District National Park, the aerodrome location is ideal for flying training and hosts two fixed wing training schools, one micro-light school and one gyroplane flying school. Trial flying lessons are available on all these types of aircraft so you can get a feel of what flying is all about. More details are available here
An excellent café is at the heart of every general aviation airfield – and Carlisle Lake District Airport’s Cafe Stobart is no exception. Located at the foot of the Air Traffic Control Tower it is open to the public 7 days a week throughout the year. The café offers a wide range of tasty home cooked meals and there is also a special children’s menu for young budding aviators. Click here
Café Stobart is a very popular destination for members of the public, pilots and aviation enthusiasts. On a summer day, you can sit outside in the viewing area that overlooks the runways and has spectacular views of the Lake District hills and the Pennines. You may also wish to visit the Solway Aviation Museum that is run by local volunteers.
