Early history

Post-war operations

  • 1946: Avro asked the club to relocate elsewhere. The club moved to Barton Aerodrome. Flying training and aircraft rental was provided to members, initially using Auster Autocrat and De Havilland Tiger Moth aircraft.
  • 2007: The club decided to leave Barton, due to terms being required by Peel Holdings that the Lancashire Aero Club's committee deemed to be unacceptable.[6]
  • July 2009: The club started operating from a single grass strip airfield at Kenyon Hall Farm, near Wigan, which it is hoped will become its new home if planning permission is granted.[7]
