I have visted Hawarden twice recently and also flown through their overhead on two other occasions en route elsewhere. ATC are excellent and extremely helpful. The last twice I have been I have visted the tower, and on the first of these occasions been shown in quite some depth by the controller what he was doing and what his job is all about. This was one of the most educational airport visits I have ever had.

As some have already commentd there can be a bit of windshear in certain conditions, but these are noted in most flight guides.

As some have said, the GA facilities are not great but this is not really a GA airport. Worth a visit though if you happen to be in the area.

Flight to Hawarden

Nice flight up, although, most of the flight was on top of a cloud layer.

Hawarden itself, was very helpful, and very pro GA. £23 landing and parking fee. Not much there, just a tower realy. Large Airbus factory.

We booked a taxi into Chester for lunch, and a good look around, nice city.

I would recomend this airport, and do go into the city, just £10 in a taxi.

Hawarden ATC very professional-while you're in the air!

Once on the ground we got the feeling the we(in a c172) weren't welcome (on completing payment of our landing fee we were asked if we were leaving straight away).

We wanted to pop across to the flying school to say hello and were told(by ATC) that we had to get PPR from the apron owners. After several prompts for who to contact and no information forthcoming we left!

I would recommend this airfield to anyone for a visit; the ATC is top grade you couldn't ask for more helpful and friendly people - VERY professional.

You've also go the beautiful Welsh hills to view whilst you fly in the relatively free airspace.
Also, its VERY easy to identify with the new A380 building calling out its position!

One negative point about Hawarden though is Chester flying school. Instructors - Fantastic, couldn't ask for more friendly and professional guys. However, the owner - money hungry and not friendly at all.

But well worth the visit to take advantage of the great views!
