Arriving by Air

The most enjoyable and fastest way to arrive at the heart of the action at our events.

Flying into Goodwood

Flying into Goodwood Aerodrome is a stress-free way to travel, especially during our busy event period. Enjoy some of the South’s beautiful scenery and experience Goodwood from a unique viewpoint. The Aerodrome offers three runways, Air Traffic Services, re-fuelling, engineering services and a professional ground crew on-site. Please note, fixed-wing and rotary aircraft are welcome during the Festival of Speed, while it is rotary-only for Members’ Meeting and Revival.
