Pilot reviews of Chilbolton Airfield

18 May 17 - Phil Cater - London

I'm based at Chilbolton so can vouch for the friendly reception visitors will get. Just £3 in an honesty box to land if you're a non-member of the club. No PPR required, just freecall on Safetycom 135.475. The runway is now regularly cut and tended although the grass parking area is still bumpy in places, so slow taxying is recommended. The low power lines running diagonally across the approach to r/w 24 are now marked with hi-vis balls along their length. Tea, coffee, soft drinks, biscuits etc stocked in the VIP lounge (club caravan) and proper toilets available on the adjacent industrial park. More details can be found on the 'Chilbolton Flying Club' website.

Dropped into Chilbolton on my way back from Devon. According to latest flight guides no longer PPR. Make blind calls on SafetyCom and keep your eyes peeled. Its under the MATZ stub so call Boscombe Zone on the way in. 411m long but an easy approach for 06, however there are some power cables on 24 approach. Runway was rather bumpy but all pretty manageble in the Jabiru SK, REMOS and Jabiru ULs that flew in with me. No facilties to speak of so sign the book and leave your landing fee.

A friendly grass strip airfield, situated just to the NW of solent CTR, lots of history, once part of a bigger WW2 airbase. No radio,contact Boscombe down zone 126.70. Rwy 24L and 06R, caution powerlines before Rwy24, and along S. side of runway.06 slight down grad. 411m, ample room for microlights! Paul robinson. oh, PPR!
