Pilot reviews of Farway Common Airfield

17 Jul 11 - Simon Boynett - Swepstone Leicestershire LE67 2RS

What a fantastic little airfield only outdone by the friendly welcome from Terry Case the proud owner.

Terry will chat to you on the safetycom freq and give you all the information you require, well kept runways and a taxiway too. It is a private strip so phone before, make a donation to grass cutting / insurance. we then caught a taxi into Sidmouth and spent a whole day in the delightfull seaside town.

Back to the airfield and allow some time to chat to Terry as he's got some great aviation stories to tell, looking forward to our return as this is a must.

This a private airstrip and PPR is essential several of us flew in recently and were made extremely welcome sited on top of a ridge so care needed to get apporach right from the west no facilties but you might well get made a cup of tea no landing fee but a contribution towards maintenance and insurance seems like a good idea

Always a cheery welcome ,a cup of tea and an interesting chat from the owner, Terry Chase. Blackie the cat will welcome you but watch those teeth and claws. Can't wait for the good weather to return. Two good runways to choose from. N/S and E/W. Great place to take in the southern coast.
