We are open and enjoying flying but we do have some extra safety measures in place during the pandemic:
If you or a household member have had any symptoms of coronavirus within the past two weeks, or if you have been asked to self-isolate by NHS track and trace then don’t travel to the airfield.
Please bring your own face covering if you have one as you will need to keep your nose and mouth covered for the duration of the flight, as per the rules for public transport and flights on airliners. Masks with valves should be avoided as they let unfiltered air out. If you don’t have a face covering we can supply a standard disposable mask, but we recommend using one you know you will be most comfortable with.
If you’d like to drop by to discuss learning to fly, we are open 7 days a week as usual but please let us know beforehand.
While at the airfield:
Please keep the recommend 2-meter distance from others at the airfield. As 2 meters is not possible in the aircaft, before flight you’ll be asked to wear your face covering. Use the hand washing facilities provided to wash your hand thoroughly before putting your face covering on, and wash your hands again immediately after exiting the aircraft and removing the face covering.
We will be cleaning aircaft between flights and have extra hygiene measures in place.
Gloves are not required as it’s possible to wash hands immediately after exiting the aircraft, but please feel free to wear a clear pair of disposable gloves if you wish to.
You are welcome to bring up to 2 people with you to view your flight as long as you can do so without breaking any existing government guidance, we have an outdoor viewing area where they can watch your flight.
We are not equipped to provide refreshments in a covid secure way, but feel free to bring your own.
Please take your litter home with you, litter is especially hazardous on an active airfield as it can quickly be blown onto a runway.
