Looking right from the pilot’s area

The owner of Ashcroft airfield at Wettenhall has kindly granted us the use of a runway and some of the facilities at his field. He has also provided us with a parking area, pits area and storage space. This has the potential to be an excellent flying site, although it must be borne in mind that it

is an active airfield handling full size (albeit light) aircraft. It is therefore essential that full size aircraft movements must always take precedence over model flying.  Members may not fly any model until they have been briefed on the correct procedures and no-fly zones associated with the use of the field.  

The pits

The owner of the field has kindly agreed to allow us the use of the airfield clubhouse. This offers the use of tea and coffee making facilities as well as a small selection of snacks and chocolate bars available to purchase under an “honesty box” system. Toilet facilities are also available.

The car park. Plenty of room!
