Visiting Pilots - PPR Process

Due to the volume of rain we have had, there are numerous areas of soft ground on the airfield. With the exception of aircraft in distress, the airfield is closed to visiting powered aircraft until further notice. 

Our planning permission states our airfield shall only be used for the purpose of launching gliders (either by aerotow or winch) or by Self Launching Motor Gliders (SLMG) including Touring Motor Gliders(TMG) and shall not be used by any other aircraft except in an emergency. We are also limited to only operate one tug aircraft . Therefore, no powered aircraft (other than SLMGs or TMGs)  may fly in.
