Andreas Airfield

Submitted by: michael geoffrey speers
Andreas radio 130.1 call blind. Gliding club active most weekends. Main runways in use 11 & 29. Watch out for loose stones and poor surface finish at each end. Use wind sock north side of 29 at the intersection, don't rely on the smaller one near to the hangers as the trees nearby can give a false reading.

    In brief...

    13 Nov 10:

    I would just like to say that I was employed by an English firm to go around the perimeter,checking the lights on top of the wood poles,and keeping the electrical side of things in good condition,(Mostly at Andreas and Jurby ) (we used climbing irons to reach the top of the poles and walked miles while doing so,we also worked at Ronaldsway , repairing undergound cables damaged by petrol spillage etc.1944to1946

    My foreman,named Jack Johnson married a Manx girl and I lost touch with him,no I live in Australia.

    Flew into Andreas for the weekend fly-in during TT fortnight in an RV6. Turned out that there was nobody organising the fly-in when we arrived and no-one on the radio giving airfield info despite the 30 or so aircraft that flew in that weekend. The airfield owner (a friendly and polite lady) was there however to collect landing fees, parking fees and camping fees (total £52) and to run people into Ramsey (for a fee of £10 and £20 on another occasion even though taxi firms only charged £10)!

    However the runway (11-29) was truly appalling as it comprised of broken up tarmac and was covered with stones some as big as your fist and did not appear to have been swept on any section despite assurances that it would be. As a result the spats on our aircraft were substantially damaged and have had to be removed to be repaired. Other aircraft that flew in seemed to have suffered a similar fate. It would have been cheaper in the end to fly into Ronaldsway.
