The radio is not always manned but always call  to advise of your presence, position and intentions for other aircraft  that may be approaching.

 

RC model aircraft fly regularly at the field so a conventional circuit with a downwind leg is important. The modellers are very professional and will land immediately and clear the runway.

 

Control line models operate on the right hand side of the 26 approach before the threshold. Again these guys are perfectly safe and will land or lower their circuits when you appear in the overhead. Just avoid the temptation to 'cut the corner off' on downwind/base/finals for 26RH as this will put you right over their heads. Likewise when departing on 08LH, comply with normal circuit procedure and climb to 500' before commencing a crosswind turn to the left.
 

Overnight camping is welcomed and there are B&B and hotels locally.

Pilots flying into the Stakeout Event 22-23 July...call with 5 miles to run for PPR and to get joining instructions. Small landing fee also covers overnight camping and live music in marquee on Saturday evening.
