Sandown Airport (Isle of Wight)

Sandown Airport (Isle of Wight) Birnie Air Services was formed in 1992, and has been offering aerial tours of the Isle of Wight, daily throughout the summer months.

The aircraft used is a Cessna 172. Ideally suited for this type of operation, it has a high wing, offering a relatively unobstructed view of the ground, suitable for not only pleasure flights, but aerial survey and photographic duties.

Although a small airport, Sandown has excellent facilities for visiting pilots. The Island has many attractions within a short distance from the airfield making it an interesting cross country destination. For those flying onto the Continent or Channel Islands the aerodrome is an ideal start destination. Assistance is available for flight planning, weather, customs, police, immigration clearance, and fuel drawback (currently 27.34 pence per litre on all fuel loaded before departure).

The Reach for the Pie cafe at Sandown is open during airfield operational hours, offering quality beverages and light snacks.
