Tatenhill Airfield, located near the village of Tatenhill in Staffordshire, was established in the early 1940s as RAF Tatenhill. During the war, it was primarily used for training purposes, including the training of Royal Canadian Air Force pilots. The airfield's grass runways and facilities supported pilot development during this tumultuous period. After the war, Tatenhill Airfield saw a variety of uses, including hosting glider clubs and private aviation activities. In the 1980s, it underwent a significant transformation with the introduction of paved runways and modern facilities. Today, Tatenhill Airfield is a popular flight training hub, with Tatenhill Aviation offering a full range of pilot courses. An ex-RAF Blackburn Buccaneer is also based here, currently undergoing an extensive restoration project to bring her back to her original 1976 glory. Tatenhill is also home to the Midlands Air Ambulance, currently operating a Eurocopter EC135 helicopter and a BMW X5 ground support vehicle.
