About Us

Welcome to Newcastle Aerodrome, a family-run aerodrome located on the East Coast of Ireland. With a history dating back as far as 1998, the original Aerodrome has shaped the development of General Aviation in the East of Ireland having assisted hundreds of students in gaining their pilot licenses.

Newcastle Aerodrome is licensed by the Irish Aviation Authority and is the only licensed aerodrome in Co. Wicklow. Huge investment has produced a 690 metre grass runway with obstacle free approaches. Newcastle Aerodrome is located below Dublin’s Class C Airspace.

From the stunning Wicklow coastline running North to South, to the Wicklow Mountains in the West, Newcastle Aerodrome offers breath-taking 360 degree views. The aerodrome is conveniently located 40 minutes drive from Dublin City and along with several award winning beaches, hotels and golf courses in the area, it is the perfect destination for a break in the East of Ireland.

Offering Light Aircraft Pilot Licence (LAPL) and Private Pilot Licence (PPL) training, along with License Revalidations, Renewals and Conversions, our flight school Wicklow Wings can support you during all stages of your flying career. Choosing Newcastle means choosing a flight school where passion meets professionalism, and where you're not just a student — you're part of our aviation family. Join us on this exhilarating journey into the skies!
