What are their landing fees again? :( I wouldn't rush there even at the best of times.


Up to around 100x cheaper than Gatwick next door - not to worry.

Good GA reliever airport for Sussex / South London in normal times. I just wished it was allowed a hard runway.

Went there many years ago--told guy my first visit.
I asked where caff was--over there -he pointed. In my innocence walked across the grass to get there. On return he said "you shouldn"t have walked on the grass.
Thought -why didn"t you tell me as first visit.
I reckon that he was ex army-obsessed with grass.

This was posted on Facebook by Derby Aero Club on Wednesday:

In line with the just published DfT regulations, flying training and private recreational flying will have to cease from tomorrow until we reopen on the 3rd of December. If the situation changes we’ll endeavour to keep people updated. Maintenance operations will continue.

The office will remain open on weekdays for telephone & email enquiries

Stay safe everyone
