All pilots are reminded of the importance of adhering to our noise abatement protocol when joining and departing. “Avoid” areas are coloured pink/red on the noise abatement maps below. Please do not overfly these villages. If possible make a left turn when departing from 24, keeping the Marsh Lane Fish ponds on your right. If you are landing on 06 keep the ponds on your left.
Standard overhead joins are preferred. Both circuits have clearly identifiable lakes on the base/final turn.

The normal circuit turns base/final at the fishing lakes. There is an extended option for separation purposes shown clearly on the plan. However if used, please do not overfly the village of Fifehead Magdalen also shown on the map.
