ABOUT

Bodmin Airfield was the development of a dream by local business man Mike Robertson, to make aviation available to everyone. In pursuit of this dream, local engineers, The Dingle Brothers were commissioned to construct the airfield on what was once Treswithick Farm.

In 1975, the airfield was bought by the Cornwall Flying Club, which, in turn, became a limited company, Cornwall Flying Club Ltd, in 1978. In keeping with the original ideals and dreams of its creator, Mike Robertson, Cornwall Flying Club operates as a non-profit organisation, to keep costs down to the end user.

NOISE ABATEMENT

Ways to reduce Noise

Consider the following measures, if safe to do so in your aircraft, in order to reduce your noise impact when departing Bodmin Airfield;

  1. Fixed Pitch Propellers – Reduce RPM to 2450, or below, once at altitude 300 feet AGL, until well clear of the airfield vicinity.
  2. Variable Pitch Propellers – Reduce RPM to 2450, or below, and reduce power at altitude 300 feet AGL, until well clear of the airfield vicinity.
  3. The main priority, however, is maintaining the safety of the aircraft and its occupants at all times.

“I enjoyed visiting Bodmin, it’s a friendly airfield in a pretty location. Reasonably short runway means you need to be sensible with weight but overall it’s definitely one to visit.”
