Peterborough Sibson Airfield Information

Peterborough Sibson EGSP

Sibson welcomes visitors. The airfield is situated to the west of Peterborough and southeast of Stamford.

The airfield is PPR as it is essential that visitors are briefed to the airfield characteristics and activity. Intense parachuting takes place and for this reason overhead and deadside joins are prohibited. Peterborough Sibson offers an Air/Ground service on 120.325Mhz and all visitors are required to be equipped with radio.
