ICAO: EGDIIATA:
Elevation: 146 feet


Opened in Feb 1944 as USAAF glider base for the D-Day invasion and after World War 2 it was turned into a hospital, eventually being put into maintenance. In 1951 it reopened but eventually became a satellite for Portland and Yeovilton. Like Predannack and Culdrose, its proximity to Yeovilton means it can take the pressure from the Yeovilton circuit during intense periods of flying training.
Used ICAO code EGDW, until c 2011/12.
