I visited Derby last week to have my radio repaired. Despite having arranged the visit 3 weeks previously the weather was favourable. The radio fault was diagnosed and repaired quickly by Derby Aero (David Jones). All the staff were friendly and helpful... tea and fuel dispensed quickly, too. Derby (and Dave) had been recommended as the place to get my radio fixed and I was not disappointed. I didn't get much sympathy for selling my share in the Pup but they were such a nice bunch I think they forgave me.

Visited Derby today for the first time. Preflight briefing, r/t and after landing directions all very clear. The welcome was very warm and I was shown some very interesting aircraft in a tour of the facilities, including the Black Magic comet racer project. You need to be confident in short-field technique, sure of your aircraft performance and the noise abatement procedures. A great place that I would like to visit again.

Always a pleasure to visit Derby. Great people, relaxed atmosphere. The runways are a little on the short side, with a number of obstructions thrown in to make it more interesting, so make sure you do your performance figures!

Visited Derby last thursday, it has a very active flying school and maintenance facility there. A tad hard to find from the air. Runways are not too short and not too long. Helpful and friendly. Best way to identify is the large amount of planes in the bottom area of the field near the club and R35.

A very friendly and warm little airfield, many thanks to the excellent and happy service of the two ground crew lads a nice change to see people who actually enjoy their jobs!
