Tuesday, 19 October 2021:
Please note runway 02/20 is temporarily reduced in length to approx. 500m. The old College Road crossing the main runway is being removed and therefore the area up to 6m either side and to the south of the old road is not available for manoeuvring. Ditches, soft/uneven ground and cones will be present in this area until sometime (TBN) in Spring 2022.

Please note: that you can only book up to 24hrs in advance; the slots are divided into half-hour sections with 6 slots in each half-hour and there is a maximum of 40 slots available per day. Therefore, although it may seem there is still capacity, we may already be full. Please enjoy your visit.

After making your booking, you will be directed to the Airfield Arrival Information Page along with a confirmation email. Please take careful note of all of the details in this page.
