Maypole Airís Brian Mayo finds the plane he built still looks as beautiful as ever.

Welcome to the Maypole Aerodrome Information Centre 


Maypole Airfield is a 650m grass airfield ideally situated in North East Kent, just a few minutes flying time from France. We have full facilities for anyone wanting to drop in before crossing the Channel including flight planning, refreshments and maintenance services.

Please note that although we truly welcome visitors, we can only accept non resident aircraft after a telephone call to confirm that the airfield facilities are operational and that take off slots will be available. However, don't let that put you off as PPR refusals are exceptionally rare. PPR on 01227 860374 alternatively 07768 658153 or 07778 787447.


Obtain PPR by telephone and then call Maypole Traffic on SafetyCom 135.475 when approaching the circuit.

Please review the Key Information and PPR Instructions pages on this site before flying in.

You will find it helpful to download and print the brochure under the Contact Us page to bring with you.


Full Maintenance Engineering Facilities Available - see the Maintenance Services pages Hangarage and Tie downs are available. Please call 01227 860374 for more information.


When using Maypole Aerodrome please help us by giving consideration to the local residents. You can do this by not over flying the houses, turning slightly left after take off on 20 to avoid the properties at the south of the field, not doing prolonged engine runs on weekends and doing your pre take off checks where the hangars will shield any noise from the village.

Thank you.
