LFA is a non-profit members organisation that works to ensure the retention of the former Naval Air Station at Lee on Solent for aviation use. If you support that aim, we hope you'll join us. We're a sociable bunch with members who range from local residents to aviation enthusiasts, pilots and aircraft owners.

Please explore the site to find out more about LFA and the history of and future plans for the aerodrome. If you're a pilot planning to fly in to Lee you'll also find useful information here and you can also check out the airfield webcams to see what's going on.
