London Elstree Aerodrome (ICAO: EGTR) is an operational general aviation aerodrome located in Elstree, and is situated 2.6 nautical miles (4.8 km; 3.0 mi) east of Watford, Hertfordshire, England.

Elstree Aerodrome has a CAA Ordinary Licence (Number P486) that allows flights for the public transport of passengers or for flying instruction as authorised by the licensee (Aldenham Aviation LLP).[2]


The aerodrome was returned to civil aircraft operations in 1946 and has since been used by aero clubs and private pilot owners for the basing and operation of single and twin engined light aircraft and helicopters. There is a large wartime built Bellman hangar and a smaller hanger owned by VVB Aviation Services, who are based at Elstree and operate helicopter training flights and London sightseeing tours.
