    Flew to Newtownards on the 1st August 2015 in my Cessna 172, from City airport Manchester,flew direct out over Southport pier to overhead Isle of Man, and then onto Strangford Lough and track up to Newtownards. Excellent Service provided by Ronaldsway allowing me to have clearance to route overhead the airfield, and later passing me to Belfast for Traffic Service, before coasting in to Northern Ireland. Weather was good most of the day except when I coasted back in, on return at Blackpool, but still good enough for routing back to City Airport Manchester. 

    Newtownards Airport is excellent airfield to visit, restaurant was excellent good food lots of choice, had a short walk down to the Newtownard town centre, people are friendly and helpful. Overall enjoyed my flight and stay, will be back.
