Flew into Leicester on 11th & 23rd Nov. Both times no problems in finding the airfield or slotting into the circuit. Very quiet on 23rd, which may have been the reason for the slower response on the A/G service. Also easier to park up - although ground soft due to all the recent rain. Great cafe/lounge area with good views of landing traffic while finishing off a bacon sandwich & coffee. Friendly welcome from locals & no problem walking around main hangar.

Visited Leicester for the first time on Tuesday 18th July. Very quiet on this hot week day, just a couple of other movements whilst we were there. Plenty of runways to choose from if required including grass. The proximity of built up areas means that circuits have to be kept close if you are in a microlight and approach to 10 with a left-hand circuit was best done with a curving base-to-final turn from abeam the threshold.

Landing fee for a microlight was the now-average-for-most-GA-fields £10. The clubhouse is pleasant with a pilot shop downstairs and upstairs a bar with nice conservatory area for eating and access to outside seating too. A selection of standard pub-type food is available from 1130 (sign says now serving on Mondays unlike the info in the flight guides). Interesting aircraft in the hangars to have a nose at with rather a lot of Pitts Specials evident.

There is a resident microlight school, so a petrol station run might well be possible with prior arrangement if you can't take the AVGAS available on the airfield (we didn't need to worry about fuel this time so didn't investigate).

Leicester's a good place for a stop, all the facilities you need and clear of controlled airspace.
