Longside technical

Specifications

Submitted by: Bill Anderson

As an update to the review dated 8 June 2012 for Longside Airfield (EGPS) the Buchan Aero Club are now in the process of upgrading the airfield as a whole.

As indicated in Pooley's and AFE VFR Flight Guides, we now have 100LL Avgas on sale and two new holding-points along with various other new signs. We are also in the process of re-cladding the main-terminal building.

Our number of flights have considerably increased mainly due to Microlight training, but also there has been an increase in the movements of resident and visiting Group(A)and Auto-Gyro aircraft.

Next year we intend to include full EASA PPL(A)training on Annex 1/11 aircraft and National Private Pilot training on Auto-Gyros. You are most welcome to visit us anytime either by air or road.
