History

While Waltham was founded in 1928 as the de Havilland Flying School. The RAF took it over in 1938, and it served as the home base of the Air Transport Auxiliary during World War II. The field stayed in RAF hands until 1982 (Prince Philip learned to fly here in 1952), and is now home of the West London Aero Club, with ~150 light aircraft based on the field.
