EGNH departing Runway 28

Few into Blackpool on the 2nd September from MOD St Athan. The occasion was an Horizon flying club fly out. I think there was 7 aircraft in total each making their own way up from South Wales.

 

Liverpool radar service was excellent and very professional and passed on to Blackpool for a right base join for runway 28.

The runways are massive and helpfully we were given fantastic taxying information by ATC.

 

The landing fee is circa £23.50 and all I would say is that they need to speed up the processing.

 

The lads in the flying club made us a free cup of tea and helped us with direction to town.

All in all a great day out.

It's been a life long dream to fly from my local airfield (EGNV) to Blackpool, most my family have grown up and still live in Blackpool. The good weather in the UK meant i finally had the opportunity to fly in. The flying in the North West is excellent, and also quite clear of congested airspace to the north of Blackpool. Organisation of PPR was very straight forward and the full flight went without a problem. The aerodrome itself is very well up kept and can be very busy with the local flying schools activities, so beware of the circuit. The parking facilities (Day Parking/Main Apron) is excellent, with plenty of room on the apron for many GA aircraft, the desk and exit is very close to the parking. 2 hours free parking, so had enough time to get to the uncle's house, a quick bacon buttie before heading back. For anyone wanting to visit the promenade there is a tramway stop in walking distance to the airport! Very easy to navigate there and back.

 

The trip was going extremely well until i visited the portakabin 'terminal' to pay. For a Cessna 177B Cardinal (1.13Tonne/2500lbs MTOW) it cost £35 (No handling charges)! Blackpool Airport as a whole is a fantastic airport to fly into, but at the price is very steep for an airport with no commercial traffic. I can see the General Aviation community at Blackpool decrease massively if pilots continue to be charged this much.

 

Take off was R28 with a right turn to the north via Fleetwood VRP, this gave a fantastic view of the 'Tall Tower' and other famous landmarks such as the pleasure beach.

Visited Blackpool (EGNH) from Netherthorpe (EGNF) on Sunday 07th July 2013 in G-ROLY a C172 based at Netherthorpe. We went to use a Flyer free landing voucher but had forgot it! More on this later. We routed via POL VOR activating our flightplan with London Information on 124.6 and then spoke with Leeds Bradford ATC and who passed us onto Blackpool. It was the hottest day of the year so far but Blackpool ATC seemed very quiet. There was no traffic around and we were asked where we wanted to route via. We selected Inskip VRP which led us nicely for a direct arrival onto runway 28 at Blackpool. ATC were excellent and after parking asked regarding fuel and we were asked to follow a PA28 to the pumps. It was semi self service and the fuel agent led us to the cabin for payment after we refuelled with 60 litres. We could not have fuelled at Netherthorpe as the dam pumps do not open until 930am which is too late in my opinion, especially in the summer. We explained we had left the free landing voucher at home and fortunately we were allowed to post it on to them which we did, we therefore avoided the £25 landing fee! We did not hang around that long and our return journey took us over Thornton-Cleveleys for some low level orbits for photographs of a family members house before heading back to POL VOR. We would like to return but without a free landing voucher the charges seem a little on the steep side. Great airport though.

Flew to Blackpool yesterday (13th July) and i was very pleased with the service provided. Make sure you call up before departure as per NOTAM, PPR is required as i believe the grass parking area is limited. Only problem I had was trying to find the 'magic' button to get out of the secure zone. Apart from that, no problems however I lost track of time and went over the 2 hours free parking limit. Landing fees for PA28 + 3 hrs parking came to £35.

Ryanair had to wait 40 minutes for Reds display because he had not read the NOTAMS, or thought they did not apply to him, Hah!

Hunter

Shot a couple of years ago, just prior to this particular hunter departing on what was to be it's last ever flight. Apparently, whilst routing through Wales, engine problems forced the pilot to eject with the loss of the aircraft. The pilot sustained serious injuries on landing.

BAe flying clubs two PA28-161's....with the rear one, G-BNOJ, suffering from a broken seal on the nose oleo. Caused, presumably, by a previous heavy landing and hence a nose down ground attitude. Fixed within the hour thanks to the Westair engineers.

Visited Blackpool yesterday, ATC were fantastic, went North after departure over the tower and pleasure beach, they couldnt have been more helpful! only minus point, £15 for a landing fee, my aircraft weighs 575kg! surely they would attract more visitors if the fee was lowered.
