Solent Airport at Daedalus is undergoing significant infrastructure and development works. During the various phases of work, the main visitor entrance to the Airport has changed from Chark Lane off Broom Way to the newly constructed Daedalus Drive, which is fed by the new junction at the traffic lights outside the front of CEMAST. If using a Sat Nav to get to the Control Tower, enter the postcode PO13 9FZ.

PLEASE NOTE: Visitor Parking is at the Control Tower.


Daedalus Drive

Whether it is a flying visit or you are visiting on foot, the newly built road provides a link between Solent Airport and the seafront.

As a visiting pilot, the road will take you direct to the seafront, and within a 10 minute walk you will find yourself in the centre of Lee-On-The-Solent.

If you would like to visit Solent Airport as a pedestrian, you will find the access off Stubbington Lane, opposite Crofton Avenue. After a short walk along Daedalus Drive, the Control Tower and its facilities are located on the left.

Be aware the road does not give access for vehicles to the seafront.
