The Airport started life in 1931, as Down Hatherly Airport. In the same year, the still operational Cotswold Aero Club was formed.

In the 1940s, the Airport served as a training base for the RAF and flight pioneer Alan Cobham helped to develop in-flight refuelling.

In 1963, the Skyfame museum was founded, specialising in the preservation of WW2 aircraft. As recognition of this Airport’s steep aviation heritage, it offers half price landing fees for aircraft manufactured prior to 1955.
