Strip and Flight line

The strip is level flat grass approximately 160 meter long by 35 meter wide with additional run off either end of over 100 meters. We have a current instrument of approval to a ceiling of 1800 feet. The field is free from obstacles. The wind is predominantly from the north which dictates anticlockwise flight circuits. On the odd occasion the wind is from the south in which case the circuits are clockwise. Generally there is no need for a flight line director due to the size of the flighting area and the experience of the usual participants. If we see the need or you do for some additional controls please let us know and we will be pleased to assist. Any safety or additional questions please see John A.

Please travel safe, enjoy the trip, we look forward to seeing you and sharing the TSA experience with you.
