Welcome to the North Weald Flying Group. The North Weald Flying Group is currently a four aircraft membership flying group based at the historical North Weald Airfield (EGSX). The airfield has excellent flying facilities as well as two cafés and is conveniently situated close to Junction 7 of the M11 Motorway, between Epping and Harlow in Essex.

We Offer

We offer excellent availability to our flying club members with a fleet of very well maintained Cessna 172s, and Piper Archer II. We are the perfect choice for both experienced pilots looking for totally hassle-free, no equity aircraft hire, or for newly qualified pilots and hour builders wanting to gain experience and confidence at the best possible hire rates. Further two-seat Cessna C152 aircraft are available at advantageous rates for NWFG members through North Weald Flight Training.

The Flying Group

The NWFG is run by an instructor and an instructor/examiner so bi-annual instructor flights, refresher flights and proficiency checks are all easily arranged as are cross channel familiarisation’s which are very popular with our members to broaden their flying horizons. The North Weald Flying Group also has a very active flying calendar for our members. These group trips offer a range of exciting and interesting days out from flying into active RAF stations and even weekend trips across Europe to group night flying flights. Check out our ‘Trips’ page to see what our members have enjoyed over the years. Further training such as the IR(R) and night rating can be undertaken with North Weald Flight Training.

Wherever You Are

The North Weald Flying Group can take you further and offer you the most cost-effective means to make the most of your PPL or LAPL. Please look at our FAQ’s page for more details and our current hire rates. If you require more information or would like to make an informal visit and discuss what the North Weald Flying Group can offer you, then please contact us.

Hour Building Packages Available

Why travel abroad to build hours towards your commercial licence when you can build hours in the UK with North Weald Flying Group. The group is run by a commercial airline pilot and examiner with the intention of encouraging people to take-up aviation and then develop their skills and interests – whether this is for personal enjoyment or as a career. North Weald Flying Group has a great range of planes to choose from and unlike other clubs, groups or training organisations, North Weald Flying is happy to allow longer-term booking of planes. Rather than flying in circles close to base, this makes it possible to take the plane away and have a real flying adventure while also building your hours and experience.

Contact us

North Weald Flying Group from the ‘Hanger 2 Apron’ at North Weald Airfield.

North Weald airfield is located a short distance from the M11 Motorway Junction 7 (Harlow). From the M11/A414 roundabout follow the A414 towards Chelmsford. At the first roundabout turn right (2nd exit signpost ‘Airfield’) and continue to the next roundabout and take the second exit into Merlin Way. As there is a ‘no right turn’ into the airfield gate continue to the small roundabout and return on the same road to enter the Security Gate by the slip road on the left.

Enter the airfield via the main Security Gate and then please follow the red centre line marking all the way around the perimeter track until you see us on the right-hand side at Apron 2.

Some Sat Navs are unreliable at this location and the postcode CM16 6HR will take you to the wrong site so please use the directions above.

PLEASE NOTE; once you pass the open barrier at the southern end of the airfield you are ‘airside’. Drive with caution, obey the 20mph speed limit and aircraft have priority on the shared road/taxiway areas!
