erm, Leeds East - EGCM now I think
There on Wednesday, a great welcome, parked overnight in the hangar, free landing with fuel and 100LL @ 1.63 incl VAT. Thanks very much! The runways :thumleft: approach via VRP. They even rolled the fire truck out for my second landing :shock:

Airfield ICAO code for Leeds East is EGCM instead of EGXG which was Church Fenton (Mods please change the thread heading)

Very pleasant and easy visit yesterday. PPR required but phone answered promptly.

There was little traffic around when I arrived, so quite easy for a straight in from the M1/A1 junction reporting point for 06. The airfield is massive, runways and taxiways in excellent condition, large control tower (callsign Fenton Radio rather than AFIS or ATC), large open parking areas. Fuel available at the pumps with credit card. Friendly staff in the tower took my landing fee £20 by card.

There's clearly been some investment made on the basic infrastructure - everything from Fire Trucks to fixed installations - although for such a large place it looks quite limited in activity, perhaps because it lacks a flying club or flight school. There's lots of large hangar space.

The Fenton Feeder cafe offers healthy food as well as the inevitable chip butty at good prices.

The airfield was busy hosting a Young Drivers event for teenagers who can drive ordinary cars off road, well away from the main runway.
