Hinton In The Hedges Airfield

Submitted by: Nick Allen

As well as the main hard runway, 06/24, listed in the flight guides, Hinton has a triangle of three grass runways: 06/24, 09/27, 33/15. These are clearly visible on Google Earth, bordering the central grass area. The grass runways are well drained and maintained, so generally usable all year. Do not attempt to land on the other hard runways; these are definitely disused.

It's not unusual to find three runways in use at once, with general traffic using 06/24, gliders being towed off 09/27, and tugs and gliders popping back onto 33/15. If there's parachuting going on, these will naturally be coming down from the upwind quarter, and everyone else will be circuiting to keep out of their way. Keep your eyes open, give general calls to "Hinton Traffic" to let everyone know where you are and where you are going, and it's best not to try and land when the drop zone calls "Canopies in the overhead"!

There is no landing fee; Avgas is reasonably priced. By the parachute club you'll find decent toilets as well as a caravan selling bacon sarnies etc. By the gliding club, there's another caravan owned by local LAA pilots, where you may find tea, biscuits and conversation.

    Visited Hinton in the Hedges 20 & 21 July to fly with Go Fly Oxford and one of their instructors. Excellent instructors and modern facilities attached to the side of the Hinton Skydiving hangar. When preparing to fly or approaching to land there is a great need to check the parachuting situation by contacting the airfield A/G frequency. Tell everyone where you are and what you are doing and get on with it. A very relaxed airfield with gliders, parachuting and powered aircraft all living happily together. The hard runway can be difficult to spot and the others are unusable but there is the option to takeoff/land on the grass 27/09 runway which was surprisingly smooth. Fuel is available and the paperwork is in a small building to the side. The tea-van” was no longer in evidence, replaced by a proper cafe next to a large outside seating area but it looked to have a good selection of burgers, bacon butties, drinks etc. The whole place was just so very relaxed. Although this airfield is some driving distance from me and I pass several others on the way I will definitely be returning to complete my training.
