Flew into Jersey (EGJJ) on 06/09/2012 for the last stop of our trip where we took in Le Touquet, La Rochelle and also Jersey. We were in G-ROLY a C172 based at Netherthorpe (EGNF). This was my first time SVFR, and they even had the inner class D in case I needed an ILS however all this week was glorious CAVOK conditions. We headed north over Mont Saint Michel and soon turned left towards the island. We were given clearance to enter the zone SVFR not above 2000ft and follow the coast to the south generally heading for right base for runway 09. All very simple and easy. Upon landing we taxied to the aeroclubs grass parking where I phoned for fuel. This was one while we were away from the aircraft. There are trolleys for your bags and cases. It was initially a little difficult to communicate with the aeroclub lady all I got was a blank expression but the day after she was much better. Maybe she was stressed. She called us a taxi but a very helpful instructor called Brian offered us a lift to The Club Hotel and Spa. Thank you Brian! One night on the island and then back via taxi which cost us 20 euro from St Helier. Our taxi was prepared to accept euro for this one but officially they are not taken. No duty free (which is shame) as this is in the terminal a few hundred yards away. The cash machine is also in the terminal. The aeroclub was open earlier with it being friday and we got some lunch and sat out on the lovely eating area overlooking the airfield. Not much hot food available though for some reason, only soup. There was an instructor on hand for any advice you needed along with a computer logged on to the internet. Cannot wait to return and even take in the other channel islands too. Fuel was £1.55 per litre Club fee of £10 Landing fee of £12 up to 1.5 tonnes Liam Sandie

Flew to Jersey for the first time on 29th August. A fantastic destination, I would recommend it to anyone, especially those who have just started to Channel cross. ATC were really good as were the aero club guys. They fill your aircraft up to your requirements while you mince around the Island, and its ready when you get back!

Looking forward to going back.

Just had a wondeful two-week holiday in Jersey, with around 8 hours logged flying Jersey Aero Club's extremely tidy aircraft. Being an overseas member means I needed to complete a 45 hour check - 1st try the Wx had deteriorated from engine start to the take-off roll, with another instructor in the circuit reporting that the cloud was at 500' over Corbiere Lighthouse - got o 300' and straight into IMC! An interesting circuit. After completeing the check flight the following day, including the mandatory Alderney check, was able to hire the club Archer 3's (2xGNS430's, STEC-55 Autopilot etc...) and had several enjoyable flights over France/Guernsey/Alderney.

The club also has the exclusive use of a DHC-1 Chipmunk (on permanent lease from Air Atlantique) and having previously completed my tailwheel conversion, I also did my 45 hour check flight in that to keep current.

Apart from often having to hang around holding at various VRP's waiting for the big boys to lant or depart, flying in Jersey is an extremely enjoyable experience. The ATCO's are all extremely professional and accomodating. The club facilities have to be one of the best in the UK with excellent flight planning and met access via extremely fast broadband PC's in the ops room. The club's Aviator lounge has an excellent bar and restaurant facilities with cheap tea/coffee/beer and food - and a superb sun terrace overlooking the threshold for rwy 27.

Dual and solo hire rates are very competetive, especially considering the high standard of their fleet of PA28's. They also have a much reduced 'standby' rate (with conditions) if you are happy to take a chance on availability. All the club staff and instructors are friendly and you always made to feel most welcome.

If you ever find yourself in Jersey, give them a visit. And I would recommend the Normandy Landing Beaches and Mt St Michelle as overhead destinations as an excuse to go flying.
