Went into Fishburn as something of a diversion, since earlier sectors had gone pear shaped. As it turned out I was there for two nights as weather further north was a problem.

 

The staff there could not be more friendly and the field is a delight, including the new cafe.

 

When we made an abortive attempt to go further north and had to return, they would not take another landing fee.

 

Sloping runway and adjacent power lines need to be looked out for, however.

Visited Fishburn from Netherthorpe (EGNF) on 12/06/2015 in G-ROLY a C172 based at Netherthorpe.

Late departure from Netherthorpe due to low cloud and fog but it was CAVOK at Fishburn. I was aware of the slope and decided to land uphill on 26 despite the 8kt tailwind. As we approached another aircraft was lining up on 08 which messed things up slightly and I ended up going around. No issues landing, but be prepared and have an idea what to expect.

A couple of aircraft on the ground and the new Café 26 was open. We opted for breakfast sandwich and drink (1 alcoholic for non flying pax) and it was a pleasant hour or so in the sun.

No real response from radio calls and we did not need PPR, just advised to call up when inbound.

An interesting airfield and set in nice surroundings.
