Did my TWC at Clacton this summer. Lovely airfield, very friendly and helpful staff. In particular say hello to old John in the office, he's probably been there since silly oclock in the morning, mans the radios, takes the bookings for Clacton and Classic Wings at Duxford, sweeps up, goes and does the shopping, and doesn't stop until the last person goes home. Cracking chap. :)

Finding the airfield; it's just to the west of Clacton town, pretty much on the beach. Watch out for that sea breeze, makes the windsock do funny things during the day.

The runway - 600 metres of grass, but it's cut in half by a public footpath which has right of way, as I found out when an old biddy and her dog wandered across when I was on short final. Stay alert for that one!

There's a private strip about a mile to the northwest, the users there tend to join Clacton's circuit and then just drop off into their strip, so don't be too alarmed if you see that.
