Caernarfon Airfield (EGCK)

Bear in mind that if the wind favours 02/20 then certain amounts of back-tracking will be required. Those not familiar with Caernarfon might like to enquire over the phone when booking a slot. Go-arounds due to aircraft on the active runway are not uncommon, especially if 20 is in use.

Those unfamiliar with the area should watch out for the Nebo mast to the south of the airfield, the top of which reaches about 2000ft asl, and the ruddy great lumps of rock to the east of the airfield!

Fuel is available and if you're likely to need it you're advised to fill up when you arrive, which also means you know exactly how much you're paying. Those who decide to fill up before they leave often end up in a long queue, if everyone chooses to leave and fill up at the same time!

(Info from Martin Sapsed)

Caernarfon Airfield accepts genuine emergency and precautionary diversions without charge per CAA CAP 667 9.2 (c) recommendations.

    Visited over the bank holiday as part of a club flyout from Gamston Flying School in the Arrow, Gamston to TNT, then south of Hawarden to Bangor (Rhyl airshow was notamed so kept further south), then coastline past the town and across the bay. Airfield very easy to spot due to the flat surrounding terrain, coast and those massive windmills. Overhead join for Runway 25 then quite a tight circuit and down over the caravan park being mindful of the displaced threshold.

     

    Airfield itself looks really nicely kept, lots of new looking buildings, the air ambulance and the Bristow coastguard base. Stands and taxiways are clearly marked and runways and taxiways are in good smooth condition. Signs up everywhere for £20 fine for not wearing hi viz's (quick run back to the aircraft before anyone noticed!) Cafe on site very nice, it's about a 30 minute walk along the beach to quite a nice chippy and ice cream place.

     

    Departing as it was hot and we were heavy I asked if I could use R20, which is longer and would have had 10 kts straight down it and was told no because of the wind turbines and turbulence coming off them, which is a shame as we wouldn't have been airborne until well upwind of the turbines so took the short runway and crosswind instead and climb out over the sea.

     

    Lovely place to visit - we got lucky with the weather so could enjoy the stunning scenery.
