Sturgate airfield is an aerodrome located 10 miles north of Lincoln, Lincolnshire, England. Originally opened in 1944 as RAF Sturgate, the airfield was planned as an operational bomber air station, but opened too late to see active use. The RAF station was closed down between 1946 and 1953, but saw further service as a Royal Air Force base until 1964, providing a stop for USAF SAC fighter units being relocated to other bases. Currently, it is an unlicensed aerodrome operated by Eastern Air Executive and the Lincoln Aero Club.
