Covid policy - from 18th May 2021

The Airfield

New Government Guidance was published yesterday (17th May)..
It States that “GA flying can take place in line with the restrictions and rules on gatherings.”
There is no longer statement that you can only fly with members of your household..
And the rules on gatherings are now that up to six from different households can meet indoors.
So I feel it is fair to assume you can now fly with others not from your household.
The question of landing away has been asked,the guidance simply says
“when travelling with in the UK,you should aim to do so safely”…
 
The Airfield,will continue to only accept Visitors who have called or emailed for prior permission.
The Radio will remain un-manned during the week and on Marginal weekend days..
Based Pilots are still asked to pre-notify flights and fill in the on-line log afterwards..
IF fuel is required please let me know when notifying your flight..
I will let you know if there is anything you need be aware of…
IF landing away,Please just be careful…

PLEASE fill out the post-flight form which you can find HERE

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. Feeling brave? Try Geoff’s Big Breakfast Challenge!  The kitchen is open 10.00-2.00, at all other times snacks, confectionery, ice-creams and Tea/Coffee  are available.

Sunday Lunch:

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. Click here for details. 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.
