Visited Sywell from Netherthorpe (EGNF) for a short winters flight on 13/01/2016. This was in G-ROLY a C172 based at Netherthorpe. This was my first X-country after gaining a "fATPL". PPR was arranged via a phone call with zero fuss.

 

We routed at 3000ft and had a zone transit of East Midlands airspace. Weather was fantastic for the time of year.

We completed a standard overhead join and had a 10kt crosswind from the right for the landing on runway 21.

 

We went for fuel which is self service, well worth remembering on the cross country flights if you need to drop in for fuel!

 

Breakfast was served in the fantastic Pilots Mess café. It was a lovely breakfast but a little pricey at £7 each in my opinion. The airfield as a whole is in great condition and appears to be doing well. The landing fee was £15 which to be honest I am happy to pay if it keeps the airfield in thriving condition.

 

Would certainly recommended a visit.
