Unit History: RAF Pocklington
Pocklington Airfield has three concrete and tarmac runways of 1,600 yards (1,500 m) - sufficient length to play host to RAF bombers during World War Two but in September 1946 the airfield was closed. Although the site remains in use with gliders - and occasionally hot air balloonists - a lot of the concrete runway surface has gone, and the control tower is not in operation. It is therefore classified as "Limited flying". The airfield is now wholly owned by the Wolds Gliding Club. It is unlikely ever to be developed beyond its present use.
The nearest commercially operating airport is Humberside Airport, another former RAF airfield.
