The Leinster Aero Club was founded in 1956 and originally based at Weston Aerodrome. In 1964, the club re-located to Dublin Airport, where it existed until relocating back to Weston in 2004.

In 2006, the club moved to a strip near Dunshaughlin, Co. Meath. Since March 2016, the club has returned to its original base at Weston.
