Manchester Barton PPR Request

Manchester Barton

Manchester Barton Aerodrome is situated in Eccles, Greater Manchester, approximately 20 minutes from Manchester city centre by car. The Airport officially opened on 29th January 1930 with a large Hangar, which was designed to house the most advanced passenger aircraft of the day, the Imperial Airways Argosy. Today, the airport is home to multiple fixed and rotary operators, as well as a thriving GA community. Lancashire Aero Club; following a short hiatus away from the airfield, returned in 2022 to sponsor a small club lounge for pilots from the base of our historic tower. Today, spotters are likely to observe anything from Ikarus and Eurostar aircraft to PC-12 and Sikorsky S76 helicopters as well as the based North West Air Ambulance and NPAS helicopters.
