Cranfield Airport (ICAO: EGTC) is an airfield just outside the village of Cranfield, 7 NM (13 km; 8.1 mi) south-west of Bedford in Bedfordshire, England. It was originally a World War II aerodrome, RAF Cranfield.
Cranfield Aerodrome has a CAA Ordinary Licence (Number P803) that allows flights for the public transport of passengers or for flying instruction as authorised by the licensee (Cranfield University) situated next to the site.
In addition to University flights, Cranfield is home to the Met Office research aircraft Facility for Airborne Atmospheric Measurements.
Cranfield is also home to the privately owned English Electric Lightning T5 "XS458" which conducts regular demonstration fast taxi and ground runs at selected weekends during the summer months.
The aerodrome is also used by fixed-wing and helicopter flight training organisations. Increasingly, general aviation, small business aircraft and private jets make use of the facilities. The airfield is 3 mi (4.8 km) from the M1 motorway and the town of Milton Keynes, making it the nearest to the town.
Although the length of the runway means that Cranfield can handle small to medium sized airliners, remaining infrastructure is not suitable for scheduled passenger flights.
