I (knowing nothing about what Alderney is made of) would have assumed it would drain away reasonably quickly. This has made me think though, with the soaking grass airfields got over the summer, presumably the usual UK suspects may start closing early this autumn/winter.
Went there yesterday, flight planning is covered well on the Channel Islands control zone site, http://www.cicz.co.uk/. We filed NEDUL ORTAC DCT and added EGJJZTZX to the address. PPR not needed during the summer, though parking looks quite limited for the flyin. 12 hours notice for your GAR. Talked to Bournemouth LARS until 10nm before ORTAC and then Jersey who came in strength 5 at 3000 feet. We were told to remain clear, but this was to ensure he had us identified and 30 sec later we were cleared in SVFR with not above 2000 feet, call Alderney in sight. Transferred to Guernsey approach, then tower. Sporty approach on to 08 due wind 080/16. Parking is on the grass areas to the east of the airport buildings. Hi Viz required.
In the office, you need to fill in a gen dec. keep the blue copy, you'll need it to get back in! Fueller works off site, there is a direct line on the desk. He took about 10 min. Stick to the marked green lines on the apron. There is lots of tourist information in the office as well.
The only town is St Anne, which is about 10 min walk, 20 min to the furthest part. Jacks brasserie at the far end of the Main Street does good coffee and cake, with a nice place to sit outside. We took one of the cliff walks to Longis Bay, there is a nice place to eat at the Old Barn, about 30 min back on the "main road" to St. Anne. It's much less built up than Guernsey, we preferred it. Bikes are for hire in town about £9 for the day apparently.
Departure very straightforward, route was the reverse.
