Airfield Services

We are delighted to provide a range of fuelling, parking, and hangarage options tailored for both our members and visitors.

We offer outdoor grass parking or hangarage options for visiting aircraft on a nightly, weekly, or monthly basis, and for home-based aircraft on a monthly, quarterly, or yearly basis.

While outdoor grass parking is consistently available, hangar space for visiting aircraft may be limited. Please contact our office to inquire about availability and pricing for hangarage.

Basing your aircraft with us at Derby Airfield not only ensures the safety and security of your aircraft, but our location also makes us an ideal choice due to its secure and accessible setting. Nestled in a well-connected area, in a safe neighbourhood between the A50 and A38 trunk roads, Derby and Burton-on-Trent are within easy reach. Additionally with 24/7 surveillance, your Aircraft will be protected from unauthorized access and, if hangared, the weather. Our central location means easy and convenient access for you when you want to fly.


Derby Airfield offers Avgas 100LL fuel for both visiting and home-based aircraft.

Visiting aircraft are fuelled by a staff member, which can be arranged when calling for Prior Permission Required (PPR) or by informing our office staff. Home-based aircraft are provided with a fuel key for self-service refuelling.

All fuel must be paid for before departure, unless you have a fuel account with us. We cater to both fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters.

Helicopter pilots needing fuel should inform us when requesting PPR to ensure the apron is clear upon arrival.

Visiting Us By Air

Derby Airfield is PPR by Telephone 01283 733803.

We fly with consideration to our neighbours and local airspace restraints. Our circuits, arrival and departure procedures are designed to avoid overflying local settlements and ensure safe clearances away from controlled airspace to our south east. We therefore request pilots operate with due care and we request all pilots call by telephone before departure to gain PPR, airfield briefing, circuit procedures and good neighbour policy.

Also note the runway distances - check before setting out that you and your aircraft is capable of safe operation from our airfield.

Thank you for complying and we hope you will enjoy our wonderful little airfield.
