Pilot reviews of Branscombe Airfield

25 Sep 11 - ian foster - bromsash
Made our first trip to Branscombe yesterday the 24th, and as it was flight since getting licensed we were very happy to receive a warm welcome in sunshine .! did expect more aircraft though! we thought the Strut scramble was Saturday! still, walked down the hill into Branscombe and had lunch at the very nice local pub. good hike back via the fields where we picked a kilo or so of mushrooms( enjoying them for Sunday breakfast) 10£ landing fee was fine.for a smart clean and well maintained grass strip Sunday.. raining with a 20knot southerly forecast! R28

Flew to Branscombe yesterday in my mates Pioneer. After a small delay due to coastal fog we took off in 23 degree heat and found the journey super smooth with virtually no turbulence at all. We arrived to coastal fog up to and level with the top of the cliffs (photo to follow) what a fantastic view. The Devon Strut Fly In was hardly advertised at all, even still, about 40 aircraft turned up. Landing fees are normally £40 - £50 ish so was good value for money when we were told it was just £5. What a wonderful spot !! We were parked on the camping field just off the runway in between trees used to segregate the tents. We just wanted to stay there forever.

Tea, coffee, cold drinks, bacon rolls and burgers were coming out of our ears as much as you wanted and all INCLUDED in the landing fee. Had there been a charity tin or contribution tin we would not have minded one bit to contribute. Fantastic, now that's how to have a fly in.

And guess what......I was wearing my UKGA T-Shirt !!!!

Have never flown into Branscombe for show (land in Dunkeswell 1 to 2 times/yr) and hope to join Branscombe directly on 28 or 29 July this year from France with a Navion and Seneca 2 - what are customs formalities we should go through?

Many thanks for your reply on nicholasrodney@free.fr
