World-class, large-scale facilities
Cranfield is one of only a few universities in the world to own and run its own airport, maintaining an aerospace heritage stretching back more than 70 years.
Many of our facilities are industry standard, used by other universities and serve as essential, front-line resources for the UK as a whole. These include the National Flying Laboratory Centre, the National Wind Tunnel facility and the National Reference Centre for Soils.
Our pilot hall facility provides UK researchers with the unique ability to test, at scale, plants with real sewage. It is directly linked to Cranfield University’s 3,000 population equivalent sewage treatment works and can also receive imported water.
Cranfield’s Crash Impact Centre is one of just three FIA-approved test centres in the world, crash-testing Formula One cars.
