Old Sarum Airfield

Old Sarum Airfield (ICAO: EGLS) is located 2 NM (3.7 km; 2.3 mi) north northeast of Salisbury, Wiltshire, England.

The aerodrome has a CAA Ordinary Licence (Number P768) that allows flights for the public transport of passengers or for flying instruction as authorised by the licensee (Blanefield Airfield Operations). The aerodrome is not licensed for night use.

The site is a mix of residential and industrial sites. Residential areas are located to the east, occupying the old airfield married quarters and officers' mess, now known as Throgmorton Hall. Industrial/business units occupy a large number of the original World War I and World War II airfield buildings, as well as several large modern warehouses, office blocks and car showrooms, the development of which is continuing to the present day.

Old Sarum is the best-preserved flying field of the World War I period. It is bounded by one of the most complete suites of technical and hangar buildings of the period. The site has three Grade II* listed hangars, a Grade II listed former workshop, and a Grade II listed TA Headquarters (former Station Headquarters).

The airfield was designated as a conservation area by Salisbury District Council in February 2007.
