Information for Visting Pilots by Air

Map of the local airspace/restrictions (Correct as of May 30, 2006)

Glider pilots should be OK to visit on any flying day so long as you give a quick radio call on 130.125 (CURROCK BASE) to inform us of your intentions and that the current circuit pattern is flown.

Power Pilots.

Power pilots are only to visit with prior permission by ringing the club house (01207 561 286) unless they are forced to land due to technical problems.  Please make sure that you sign our "Visiting Pilots Book" which is situated in the club house.  Currock Hill does lie within Newcastle Airports Control Zone so permission will have to be granted from there initially before entering.  Again can you please give the club a quick radio call to confirm your intentions on 130.125 (CURROCK BASE).

Please use the Aerotow strip for landing on which faces 24/06.  The threshold for runway 24 is adjacent the windsock.
