Visited Guernsey (EGJB)from Netherthorpe (EGNF) on 11th August 2015 for an overnight stay returning on the 12th. This was in G-ROLY, a 172.
As usual the flight plan was filed via AFPEx and GAR forms sent via SkyDemon (free of charge). It was an early departure from Netherthorpe (0730local) for the flight down.
The weather was not great but easily arranged an ILS with Guernsey ATC and received vectors for the ILS onto runway 09, making the most of my IR(R).
We had arranged handling via ASG and they were there to meet us and gave helpful advice. They arranged fuel for us and we enjoyed the stay despite the weather. On the return to the airport the next day I was able to use their PC to file the return flightplan again via AFPEx and we departed a short time later with strong winds.
I have now visited all 3 Channel Islands and Guernsey worked out the most expensive at £53.20 for landing, parking overnight and handling. Still it was nice to have access to the ILS and the handling agent was good.
Will definitively be back in the future!
