Operation

  • Single grass runway - Can get very boggy after rain

  • Call inbound for airfield information and if no reply make blind traffic calls in the circuit

 

  • Mostly winch launch/occasional aerotow 

 

  • No overhead joins due to winch launching to 2000 ft 

 

 

  • Midweek glider landouts – use PPR contact details to obtain airfield access for retrieve crews 

 

  • Please avoid overflight below 2500 ft due to winch launching – you will not see us until it’s too late 

  • Avoid overlapping Deenthorpe Airfield

    • Circuits to the North, remain south of Minor Road Brigstock-Lower Benefield
