This site has been set-up by the North Weald Airfield Users Group, which is a voluntary organisation established to raise awareness of and coordinate support for the airfield and to campaign for its long term future. On this page we inform you about the activities which take place on the airfield and it has also been a focus for the the group's ongoing efforts in campaigning to prevent the airfield from being re-developed for housing and to speak out against other developments in the area which would have threatened its future as an aviation facility.  With the recent arrival of the National Police Air Service (NPAS) and Essex & Herts Air Ambulance (EHAA) bases on the airfield, its future appears to be secure for the medium term but we continue to monitor various plans, proposals and schemes on and near the airfield so that we can mobilise support should further threats to its future arise.

North Weald Airfield was established in 1916, was in front line service during the Battle of Britain and is still very active, not only being used for aviation, but also a wide range of other sporting and leisure activities.  It also hosts the UK's largest open air market, every Saturday.  It is home to a number of aviation and non-aviation businesses, offering employment opportunities to the local community. See the activities section of the website for more details of what takes place on this historic and versatile location
.

North Weald boasts some of the best aviation facilities in Eastern England, with its long tarmac runway, ample aircraft parking, refueling, engineering services for all types of both historic and contemporary aircraft and its excellent airfield-based
fire service . It also has endless possibilities for other sports and leisure uses. There are two cafes located on the airfield and open to the public, from where the aircraft activity can be viewed; Rosey Lea, at The Squadron and Wings Cafe located next to Hangar 4. 

The airfield also enjoys the support of the local community, who are proud of "their" airfield and its history.  This is reflected by the fact that the village sign of North Weald Bassett depicts a Hurricane flying over the airfield.  As such it should be preserved as a versatile facility to be enjoyed by future generations and also as a permanent memorial to those past.
