Covid Policy update 14th July 2021

NEWS –
Strut fly-in & Wings and Wheels cancelled

The Airfield

It will probably come as no surprise that I do not agree with the Governments decision in removing the last of the Rules.

New cases increased by 36,600 yesterday and 50 more dead…over 40% 0f those dying are double vaccinated and over 50.

Hospital admissions are being reported a week in arrears for some reason, but are steadily increasing.

I refuse to expose Staff, Volunteers and You to any risk that can be mitigated. Rules will remain in place at the Airfield.

Hand Sanitiser WILL be used upon entry to the Clubhouse.

Masks WILL be worn whilst you are inside the building and not seated.

Doors and Windows will be left as they are found.

No one will enter the Control or Kitchen areas.

Booking for meals is still requested.

If you feel unwell please stay away.

If you have travelled abroad or been in contact with anyone who has covid, Please don’t come to the Airfield for at least ten days, whether you are Double vaccinated or not.

Visiting Aircraft must seek prior permission.

Based Pilots must continue to pre-notify flights and fill in the on line log upon return.

Sanitiser must be used at the fuel pumps.

The Radio remains un-manned on weekdays and marginal days at the weekend,Blind calls on frequency are essential.

Welcome to Henstridge Airfield….

A friendly general aviation airfield near Wincanton, Somerset.

What is Henstridge?

Henstridge airfield is not only a busy hub for pilots and flying students,  it is also host to numerous other events throughout the year. There’s vintage car and ‘plane days, car boot sales, charity events and much much more!

What happens here?

There’s always something going on, with visiting and resident aircraft of all types arriving and departing. We have four Tiger Moths based at Henstridge, there are microlights, gyrocopters, the Yakovlev display team, and more. We are also home to the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance and various events throughout the year raise funds to help this worthy cause.

The Clubhouse:

There’s a lively club atmosphere at weekends and visitors are very welcome by air, car or motorcycle.  At weekends hot food is available including Chilli-con-carne, curries, sandwiches and Geoff’s famous breakfast fry-up.  The kitchen is open 10.00-2.00, at all other times snacks, confectionery, ice-creams and Tea/Coffee  are available.

Sunday Lunch:

SUNDAY SPECIALS CURRENTLY SUSPENDED….Please see menu at top of home page
There’s usually a crowd in for Sunday lunch, even when the weather’s no good for flying. Geoff creates a “Sunday Special” set menu, alongside the usual choices.  Booking advisable..All meat produce is sourced locally from a family butcher, including prime joints and delicious home-made sausages, burgers and faggots!

Potted history of the airfield:

Henstridge airfield was originally a wartime Fleet Air Arm training site, designated HMS Dipper. After the war Henstridge was taken over by private individuals and  has been an active airfield in one form or another ever since! You can see more of the airfield’s fascinating past in the history section in the drop-down menu.
