Soroti Airport has two runways. Its longest runway (05/23), is the third longest tarmac runway in Uganda, at 1,860 metres (6,100 ft).

History

The second runway has a laterite surface (09/27) and measures 769.5 metres (2,525 ft) long. Both runways are 30 metres (98 ft) wide. The main runway and apron are tarmac and can support aircraft up to the size of a Boeing 737, without damage to the surface.[3] The airport sits at an elevation of 1,110 metres (3,640 ft) above sea level.

The airport was originally built as a training school for the British Overseas Airways Corporation to train their pilots in tropical flying techniques. It was later used by the East African Flying Academy to train pilots from the East African Community. Today, the airport is home Soroti Flying School, which has various aircraft, including a Cessna 310. The flying school provides training through instrument and multi-engine ratings. The flying school has dormitories, food service, and classrooms.
