Lasham Airfield is located 3.6 mi (5.8 km) north-west of Alton in Hampshire, England, in the village of Lasham.

The airfield is owned by the world's largest gliding club, Lasham Gliding Society. Pilots of powered aircraft visiting the airfield require prior permission and a briefing on its hazards: in particular dense concentrations of thermalling gliders (up to 100 gliders can be in the vicinity at once), winch cables up to 3000 ft (0.9 km) above the ground, and occasional movements of large jet airliners. Over-flying aircraft are requested to not fly below 3618 ft (1.1 km) QNH. The airfield frequency is 131.025 MHz.
