Peterborough Business Airport (ICAO: EGSF) is a privately owned airfield in the English county of Cambridgeshire near the villages of Holme and Conington, 7 NM (13 km; 8.1 mi) south of Peterborough.
After World War II the field was passed to RAF Bomber Command but was mothballed in 1946. The intervening history is unclear, but by the mid 1970s there were portable cabins on site serving the airfield, and a dedicated building with control tower was built in 1995. In 2000 the flying club changed hands and was renamed Flying Club Conington.
