Visited Henstridge (EGHS) from Netherthorpe (EGNF) in G-ROLY a C172 on 13/04/2016.

 

This was after reading a review by Andy on his blog

(see https://adhawkins.wordpress.com/2016/02/28/currency-check-but-with-some-real-flying/#comment-855 )

 

The flight was around 1 hour 40 minutes, routing south through East Midlands zone before turning south west.

The weather was rather nice, one of the best so far this year.

 

We had arranged PPR prior to departing and it was made clear we needed to follow local noise abatement procedures, which we did.

 

The airfield was fairly easy to spot from the north approach and we completed a standard overhead join at 1800ft on the QFE for a left hand runway 25 landing.

 

It was a weekday so we were not expecting food however we were offered some and opted for some bacon sandwiches, most kind of the staff.

After an hour or so we asked for fuel and was told we could taxi across for it. Worth noting that you then have to back to the office to pay so if you have someone else with you it might be worth them staying and you phoning them to tell them the amount rather than moving the aircraft all the back again.

 

All in all a friendly airfield, not as flashy as the Compton Abbas which is nearby but just as friendly.
