Breif History

Eastchurch is styled the home of British aviation as Eastchurch airfield saw the first controlled flight by a British pilot on British soil.

The Eastchurch airfield played a significant role in the history of british aviation from 1909 when frank McClean aquired Stonepits farm on the marshes across from Leysdown, converting the land into an airfield for members of the Aero Club of Great Britian.

The short brothers, Horace, Eustace and Oswald built an aircraft at Battersea to be tested at the site.

Moore-Brabazon, A.K. Huntington, Charles S Rolls and Cecil Grace all visited and used the flying clubs services. The Wright Brothers Wilber Orville came to the isle of Sheppey to visit the new flying grounds of the aero club,

in 1909 Moore-Brabazon made the first live cargo flight by fixed-wing aircraft by tying a waste paper basket to a wing strut of his Shorts-Built Wright aircraft. then using it as a cargo hold he airlifted a small pig.

During the battle of Britian the site was one of the notable bases for the polish air force.
