Pilot reviews of Draycot Aerodrome
Flew in on a very pleasant Saturday in late September. It was deserted except for two guys pushing an aircraft into a shed. Very rural and unspoilt. You could bring a picnic and spend a very nice summer afternoon here. Watch out for the roller coaster ride on take off. Be aware of rapidly rising ground to the South on take off runway 18. Will happily return, but £10 landing fee (there is an honesty box) is a bit steep. Maybe they don't want casual visitors.
|“||Fly into Draycott today. Dificult to find amongst the crops! Tea available in Ops Room, (make your own). had the misfortune to have a starter motor failure, but the owners were superb, especially Mandy who works in the Office. Helped out with phone numbers for technical aid etc, made us some more tea...and even gave us a lift to the local pub!
Will go back again...even if only to take her some chocs!!
