Pilot reviews of Cark Airfield Airfield

6 May 12 - Lawrie McWilliams - Harrogate

Called in on a busy Saturday and received a warm welcome. Much parachuting activity with about 100 excited members and spectators on site. Very active 'drop plane' making frequent trips. Held off twice because I missed my time slot and got an understandable 'get on with it' from the airfield. They were coordinating a lot of activity and I was a bit slow on the uptake! Great little cafe with chilled snickers. Well worth a visit.

Well situated at the southern end of the Lake District. We went mid-week when the Para club were not operational, although there was still a friendly lady manning the phone at the club...she also makes a good cuppa of tea ! R/C models using the field when we arrived , but landed when our intentions were obvious. Runway looks to be about 600mtrs now. Taxy with care on the grass as some areas soft and rutted. Caravan park 0.5 miles south of field

Cark: AFE says 400 meters, but there is a 200 meter over-run should it be needed. The strip is in the middle of a much longer runway now mainly breaking up, but the marked surface is quite good. Radio is mainly blind calls and PPR is essential as they graze sheep on the runway at times. (Yes - I DID have to move them once!).

It is mainly a parachuting airfield but they are very helpful for all visitors and when open for parachuting, there is a very good "greasy-spoon" cafe on site.

Lovely walks from there with views of the Cumbrian hills and the Kent estuary.

Well worth a visit - don't forget the telephone PPR!
