Maypole Airfield (EGHB)

Submitted by: Andy Haigh

We can accept any type of traffic, including helicopters and microlights.  We don't like ad hoc aeros as they can annoy the locals, but those planned can occasionally be OK.  No low passes down the runway are permitted as we have horses on site and they really don't like it!

NORDO is not a problem but we are strictly PPR (leaving a message on an answerphone is not OK) as we need to brief the pilots before they fly in.

Avgas is available on site, but again, it needs one of our team to be there to dispense so we need to be advised when we give PPR.

Maypole Airfield accepts genuine emergency and precautionary diversions without charge per CAA CAP 667 9.2 (c) recommendations.
  • Location: Kent, GB
  • Type: Unlicensed
  • PPR: Yes
  • Position: N51°20.33 E001°09.18

    Flew into Maypole from Biggin Hill on 19th August 2019. Just wanted a short flight as the weather that day was iffy with CB's and possible TSR. It's about 30 mins tacho time from EGKB. Phoned for PPR and briefing prior to departure - this is a must. First time there and what a lovely little airfield. Ample 600m grass runway for the 152. There was no radio operator - not that day anyway, which was mid week so you make calls on SafetyCom. We noticed that among the aircraft based there was an Arrow(!)so clearly you can get some serious metal in and out of there. Very friendly welcome and we walked five minutes max to the Prince of Wales pub in the village of Hoath nice old world country pub with a good menu. Unfortunately we were half an hour too early for lunch as we arrived at 1130 but we had a coffee relaxing in the sunshine in their garden. I will definitely return to this beautiful little airfield, which by the way, is very close to Whitstable, Canterbury and Herne Bay.
