An area to share information that might be useful or interesting to fellow forumites.
Home of the forum's fuel price league tables. Who's up, who's down?
Went there for the first time today. Good ATC all the way in and easy approach and join. Only one runway, so have to be midful of crosswinds (esp for taildraggers), but pretty much on the nose today.
Parking on the GA apron at the end of taxiway Bravo near the tower, easy to find. Efficient reception where I paid a hefty landing fee of £24.15 for my piddly little RV6 (727kg MAUW) - and people complain about Gloucester prices (with three runways and GPS approaches)??? Ouch!
Busy airport with loads of people in departures (down the corridor for the GA / Executive suite). Good, efficient cafe.
Southend from downwind for 06
WiFi available in the FBO and in the terminal. PC access in the FBO
Roweda, personally I sympathise with your point, but these matters are decided by the accounts department.
Any offer (albeit a temporary one) is quite a change in itself for the airport.

The new Soutehnd Airport railway station has now opened for use on the eastern boundary.
GA visitors should still park in the GA Park by the old control tower, probably about a half mile walk to the station from the FBO. When there is a passenger flight expected, there is a free shuttle bus operating between the old terminal and the station.
Service into London/Stratford takes arond 55/45 minutes respectively.
