Damyns Hall Aerodrome (ICAO: EGML) is an operational general aviation training and experience aerodrome 2 nautical miles (3.7 km; 2.3 mi) south of Upminster in the London Borough of Havering, England and slightly closer to Aveley to its south. It has around 100 acres of grassland and is owned and operated by Damyns Hall Aerodrome Limited.[2]

Status, services and amenities[edit]

Damyns Hall is an unlicensed airfield,[3] which means commercial public transport passenger flights are prohibited, and flying training must take place in aircraft below a certain weight.[4][5] London Airsports is the main business occupying the site, operating a fleet of microlight aircraft for training and experience flights.

Its hangars house many vintage and modern sport aircraft. It has a café with a garden viewing area open to the general public.

The aerodrome has an air/ground radio service as "Hornchurch Radio" on 119.550 MHz.

Events past and present[edit]

Since 2013, Damyns Hall has the main fields for We Are FSTVL, an award-winning electronic music festival. Typically set during the May bank holiday each year, the event welcomes thousands of festival goers.[6]

The aerodrome grounds hosted annually in early August the Essex HMVA Military and Flying Machines Show until 2017, when it moved to the east of the county in Maldon.
