Peterborough/Sibson Airport (ICAO: EGSP), also known as Sibson Aerodrome, is located 6 NM (11 km; 6.9 mi) west of Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, England and 1 km (0.62 mi) south of Sibson, Cambridgeshire.
The aerodrome was previously licensed by the CAA (Ordinary Licence number P5877) for flights for the public transport of passengers and for flying instruction as authorised by the licensee (Northamptonshire School of Flying Limited). It became unlicensed in 2013.
The flying school operates a varied fleet of aircraft including:
- 3 x Robin HR200/120B
- 1 x Cessna A152 (Aerobat)
- 1 x Piper PA28-161 Warrior II
- 1 x Cessna 172N
- 1 x Piper PA18-95 Cub
- 1 x de Haviland DH82A Tiger Moth
- 1 x Pitts Special S2A
There are many other varied types which are privately owned based at the airfield.
UK Parachuting, previously known as Skydive Sibson and more recently Skydive Airkix, is a very active parachuting centre which has used Sibson Aerodrome for many years. Jumps usually take place from a Cessna 208 aircraft, which is based at the airfield.
The airfield hosts two engineering companies, Busy Bee and J&J.
The present airfield lies to the north of the original site. The original airfield lay to the south of the one surviving T1 Type Hangar on the airfield. Little evidence of the original site exists, as the land was returned to farming after the war.
