Friendly airfield with helpful staff.
Cafe has good snack type food breakfast,chips etc but be aware only accepts cash.
I did suggest that they should accept cards but was told "I have been here 20yrs and have never needed to take cards" which is quite odd being as I had just told him if he had accepted cards I could had eaten.
Visited EGFE twice this week enroute to Ireland.Easy to find, long tarmac runways and helpful ATC.
The deal whereby uplifting more than 60lts of fuel still applies.Fuel price 24th Apr 2018 £1.68.
The cafe is adequate for a quick cuppa or small meal.
Everyone is quite friendly and thoroughly aware of the GAR issues affecting flights to Ireland.
The countryside around is stunning.
A very pleasant flight in a PA28 from Gloucester to Haverfordwest over the Welsh countryside. During the preflight phone call a friendly woman offerred a free landing provided at least 60 litres of fuel is uplifted.
The airfield was fairly quiet with a good A/G service and a friendly welcome. On arrival I was directed to the self service fuel pump where I discovered that the AVgas price is £1.91. This compares unfavourably to the Gloucester UL91 price of £1.47. So my 'free' landing cost me about £27!
Never mind, the cafe was open for lunch.
Would I visit again? Definitely, but not to refuel.
A very pleasant airfield to visit, not too busy and very friendly staff. The surrounding countryside provides spectacular views.
The most memorable part of my visit was the all-day breakfast, it was worthy of a photograph but there was too many people watching! I just managed to finish it all and wondered if I would now exceeded my MTOW so 10/10 for quality, quantity and price. Definitely worth a return visit.
I flew on a direct flight from Usk Gliding club in a Fournier RF5 motor glider (Weather CAVOK), my route was direct over the Brecon Beacons at 4000ft (MSA 4500ft)dropping down to 2500ft North of Swansea.
A quick side note: The Brecon Beacons area is one of the best mountain wave sites in the U.K. for gliders with very few places to carry out a field landing so BEWARE. Mountain wave is dangerous even for experienced pilots.
great airfield that's easy to find in the south west most point of Wales. Flew in through the Brecon Beacons but returned via the coast due to the weather. Important note for helicopter pilots - fuel only available from a bowser on week days, so bring your wheels at weekend!
|“||Not been to Haverfordwest for a few years, but went there on Saturday 9th July as part of Westair’s fly-out to Perranporth. (Which only made it this far, but that’s another story!)
This is a lovely airfield and, from the North, (we flew in from Blackpool down the coast), the journey inbound includes coast, mountains and beautiful scenery.
A/G was very good and the cafe was superb – bacon butties (or should that be brechdanau bacon?), par excellence!
The runway and parking areas were well-surfaced and marked, and there was self-service fuel by credit card, so no waiting for refuellers.
A lovely and friendly destination with the scenery thrown in for free.
I'd just like to thank the staff at Haverfordwest who were very friendly and very helpful in marginal weather conditions. Unfortunately, our meeting schedule didn't allow us to test more than their efficiency and the fuel supply (both very good). I look forward to returning in due course and thanks again.
|“||First visit to Haverfordwest since 1968 (?)..I remember listening to Jumping Jack Flash while waiting my turn to glide. Runway has been resurfaced and WW2 control tower gone.
Good food and I liked the self service fuel pump. I didn't get a free landing despite picking up fuel but that could have been my fault for not asking. |
|“||I visited EGFE yesterday.(8/8/2009)
An immediate response from ATC on first call. Also instructions to the pumps. Self service fuel with payment by cards. Yesterday's rate £1.45 per litre. No landing fee when fuel purchased.
The airfield has superb smooth runways.
The airfield Cafe provides excellant value for money food, I had an all day breakfast plus an extra slice of toast and a cup of tea all for £3.95.
Everyone was extremely friendly.
Viewing the Pembrokeshire Coast was a bonus to the visit.
|“||As we were planning a holiday near Cardigan I rang up to see if there was any chance of hiring a plane for a trip around the area. "No problem - Wednesday's the quieter day" came the reply from Gwyndaf. Went down to the field on the Wednesday as arranged and met Gwyndaf who took me out to check the 172 I was hiring. Unfortunately it was about 30 years older than the 172's I'm used to. The plan was for a few circuits and all being well Gwyndaf would get out and we'd carry on. However, as the plane was less familiar than I'd hoped and the wind was a bit blustery I didn't feel comfortable and he wasn't convinced either. "No problem - head off where you want and I'll come along for the ride." So we went off round St David's head with a tour guide in the RHS.
All very friendly, 2 good runways, couldn't fault them. (Didn't try the cafe though.) |
|“||Flew in to Haverford in late september. The airfield itself is very good with excellent runways and very easy to find. It all went downhill from there though. We went to pay our landing fees in the tower and were greeted with "can I draw your attention to the sign on the wall!" it said "all visiting pilots PPR" We had phoned but had apparrently reached the fllying school who didn't re direct us. We apologised for the mix up and paid our money for the privilage of flying for over an hour only to be told off. When we tried to get a coffee at ten to four it was like the world was ending for the two teenage girls who were serving "WE'RE CLOSED" was all we could get. So, tired and thirsty, we climbed back into our aircraft and headed home with a sour taste in the mouth. They certainly didn't keep a welcome in the hillside on that day! |
|“||Visited Haverfordwest from Plymouth. A fantastic airfield, easy to find, very freindly staff, great A/G radio service and set in great scenery. We had lunch in the small cafe at the airfield and it was great value for money.I was surprised how quiet the airfield was on a sunny September day. I'll certainly be going there again. |
|“||Visited today from Filton after a beautiful flight over the Brecons with almost unlimited viz. Nice airfield and A/G on the button now. The killer all day breakfast is currently £3.50. I mean killer too! Sausages, bacon, egg, mushrooms, fried bread, tomatoes and a dollop of baked beans. Total bliss :) |
|“||Very nice, but slightly quizzical about the Air Ground operator clearing people for take off/touch and go etc!! |
|“||Visited last Saturday (19th March) Been a few times from EGCC. Confirm good cafe and very friendly & welcoming. Recommended! |
|“||Very friendly and welcoming; also very nice cafe - I recommend the bacon and egg sandwich |
