Group Description

A group for pilots, enthusiasts and spotters to find an airstrip, send details of one not listed or to report strip details which are listed TBC( to be confirmed). The files will not contain any strips already listed in the Pooleys or A.F.E. or Farmstrips Flight Guides.
The listing will gradually be expanded to include location (by map referrence and GPS co-ordinates) details, though some strips already have these. Map ref and GPS will be centre of (main) runway length or village/farm name otherwise.Contact details are sometimes listed.
It is very important to contact a strip owner/operator in advance so not to spoil it for others coming after you(- I personally do not subscribe to 'landing without permission/agreement')*** IF YOU ARE AN OWNER/OPERATOR AND YOU DO NOT WANT DETAILS ON THE SITE I WILL DELETE ALL REFERENCE EXCEPT THE LOCAL VILLAGE NAME.
Files have current known/suspected strips(TBC) for the South of England and Wales; it will be up to others to send further files for the North, East, Scotland, Northern Ireland, as I am no longer able to do the mass of research. Counties currently listed: Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Hampshire & I.O.W., Herefordshire, Kent, Middlesex, Oxfordshire, Somerset, Surrey, Sussex, Wiltshire, Worcestershire and all of Wales ; updated occasionally.
*** THE MAJORITY OF THESE AIRSTRIPS ARE PRIVATE AND MANY RELY ON THE GOODWILL OF THEIR NEIGHBOURS TO KEEP OPERATING. PLEASE USE FOOTPATHS AND TRACKS WHERE SHOWN ON MAPS.IT IS OFTEN ADVISABLE TO WEAR A REFLECTIVE JACKET AT THE MORE BUSY STRIPS.
THANKYOU.
These publications were/are used during my research: Airbase 98 ( a brilliant piece of research in its own right), LAAS UK Register/'Ports of Call', Air-Britain UK Register/Around and About , the CAA G-INFO site, the Air Accident Investigations site and the LAA mag Popular Flying.
