Went there for the first time today, what a super place. Great runway, like landing on a snooker table. Restaurant was packed, food good and reasonable.

Yes it is a great place but, smooth runway ? I guess you used R08, because R26 has huge bumps 150m ish in from the numbers, shake yer fillings loose if you're not careful :eye:

Top tip :D :D
I did use 08. Trees are a bit interesting on finals, went for a Popham style offset approach....

AH HA , the trees are no problem if you come in high and steep and avoid the sink over the Vale, depends on what you fly I suppose. 8)

Edit to say - I would only use an offset approach if doing a low level ( 300ft AAL) bad Wx circuit, and at 811ft Amsl this can happen quite regularly. :)

If you order food at the ops desk, apparently they "fast track" your order. Once again very welcoming, runway (08) in good condition now after a bit of drying out.
