Rich in history, Solent Airport (formerly HMS Daedalus) is situated on the beautiful south coast, overlooking the Solent and Isle of Wight. The airfield dates back to 1917 and has been providing flying training continuously ever since.


With its runway recently resurfaced and new hangars, Solent Airport consists of on-site engineering, hangarage, outdoor parking, aircraft refuelling, cafe and much more.


The airfield is in an extended phase of redevelopment with new facilities being added all the time, further hangars are planned which will see yet more aviation arrive to the airfield over the coming years.
