Visited Newquay (EGHQ) from Netherthorpe (EGNF) on Monday 4th June 2013 in G-ROLY, a C172 based at Netherthorpe. We had 3POB. Routing was via TNT VOR and towards BCN VOR then coasting out from Porthcawl to Ilfracombe and following the coast. Visibility was superb. We had life jackets for the water crossing. I had filed a flightplan with AFPEx and we had booked in with the new Flynqy. The school had moved from Plymouth which had now closed. Finding the airfield was easy and we joined left base runway 12. The new Thompson 787 Dreamliner was doing crew training and circuits and had been the day before too. This was great to see! and luckily we had managed to land prior to it. Upon landing we were met by Flynqy staff and the fuel truck within a couple of minutes, almost too soon as we were not ready. The staff were very friendly and we only needed one high visibility between the 3 of us. We walked around the pathway to the Flynqy cabin where the landing and fuel fees were paid and I filed the return flightplan via AFPEx. Upon booking back out with Flynqy we walked back to our aircraft but was met by a security man who drove quickly up to us almost in a panic about what we were doing. He then took all our details, not really sure what was going on with him. We got the ATIS and requested start up and the route back to Netherthorpe was the same although we a headwind took 2 hours 50 instead of 2 hours for the flight out. Great airfield, large runway, ILS and full radar, lovely views, what is not to like about this airport! Nice to see Flynqy pushing business through too to get this airport back on the GA map. Look when the last review was on here for EGHQ. We will be back.
