Elmsett Airfield (EGST)

Submitted by: Steven Bailey
Visited on 27th November 2009

Beautifully kept runway with lighting, PAPIs and a very friendly welcome from the folk in maintenance.

Measured from Google Earth, the TORA is 757 m with 65 m of stopway at each end and a 15 m downslope from the 23 to the 05 threshold.

The A/G frequency of 130.25 is not used. Pilots should remain with Wattisham Approach on 125.80 until on the ground and should call Wattisham before take off.

No catering on site: nearest is in Hadleigh (about 4.5 miles by road).

    I visited Elmsett on a Saturday and there was very little activity on the airfield so wouldn't be sure that its possible to get fuel all of the time. The runway is in excellent condition as are the taxi ways and the grass parking areas. £10 landing fee paid at an honesty box on the right just inside the hanger door The airfield is easy to spot form the air and a quite large circuit is stipulated as part of the nose abatement procedures on the web however the landmarks are very easy to identify. It is the Wattisham MATZ so it is essential to call up Wattisham approach 15 miles out. There is no longer an Elmsett frequency so if Wattisham don't respond it's blind calls on the way in and out of the airfield. PPR needed and there is good info on the website.
