Home of the forum's fuel price league tables. Who's up, who's down?
Old Sarum - what a pleasant place, with friendly staff to match. I was there yesterday when a test (on me) was switched there (for reasons I won't go into) at the last moment, and so many people on the OSFS staff side went out of their way to make it a good day with minimum stress for me. It was good to see the place buzzing with so many people enjoying lunch (excellent food and selection) or coffee in the sunshine as well as the people there for flying.
If you have never been and the idea of it tucked under Boscombe worries you slightly, it really is an easy arrival even (perhaps especially!) when Boscombe is active, in which case, as you identify a specific easy to find VRP about 4 miles away and then effectively join one base or the other from there - it's far easier than many places. Also, don't let the new occasional parachuting put you off, it's just a case of calling by phone first to check if there is any, and a final check over the radio when near the VRP, I'm told.
...oohh.. ok, I've just realised what you mean
Popped in on Friday to meet a friend - can also thoroughly recommend the excellent cafe/restaurant that had an excellent spread of food on offer. Very friendly and helpful staff and a traffic service from Boscombe Radar on the way in and out.
Interesting upslope on the start of 06 though!
I know it's a silly username. If you've met me, I probably introduced myself as Josh...
It's the only place I can get fuel in the local area when I'm bimbling after work in the summer. The fuel stays open into the evening. I don't think the food's all that special, but it's not bad, and the cakes are nice. Try the Malteaser cake. Mmm...
Yes, wonderful atmosphere, great people. While you're there, have a look around the WW1 hangars. Look up when inside.
