RAF Halton (EGWN)

Submitted by: Mark Batin
RAF Halton is home to 613 Volunteer Gliding Squadron, operating the Vigilant (Grob109B) motorglider in support of the Air Cadets and the Joint Services Gliding Centre, providing Adventurous Training Gliding to the Armed Forces. In addition, the Halton Aeroplane Club, Halton Microlight Club and Chilterns Gliding Club also operate from the airfield. The airfield is very busy 0800-2000 (or sunset if earlier) seven days per week.

To accommodate these diverse users, there are separate glider and power circuits plus complex joining procedures. There is intense winch launched glider activity to the east up to the base of controlled airspace. Strict noise abatement procedures must be followed by powered traffic. PPR is always required by visitors and may only be obtained during normal working hours, Mon-Fri on 01296 623535 extensions 6367/6211. Pilots without an MOD waiver will be required to pay an insurance fee in addition to the normal landing fee.

    Halton is a busy airfield with flying training and gliding happening most days of the week. One point to note, when gliding is on there is NO deadside. If you do want to fly in then PPR is essential to deconflict with the numerous aircraft.

    The runways are long and well looked after with a huge windsock in The middle of the field.

    The 2 flying clubs present both have excellent facilities and are friendly and always on hand to give a hand should it be required. There is fuel available which is handy and well priced.
