“Very friendly welcome and all normal facilties on the airfield so it made a good base to fly into. Even managed to get 3 days hangarage! 2 runways so it was possible to cope with the strong wind on arrival without a problem. Easy to spot and pretty straightforward arrival and circuit procedures. Well worth a visit!”
