We visited Oban (EGEO) from Breighton airfield on 20/04/2013 in G-LWLW, a DA40 which runs on JET-A1 and which is based at Breighton.

The flight routing was, Harrogate - Windermere - DCS VOR, TRN VOR then up the west coast to Oban. We had stunning views en route.

Oban was easy to spot and we used runway 19 which involves a relatively short final approach due to high ground. We joined downwind for runway 19. The runway is in excellent condition and the airport itself is too.

Staff were most helpful within the terminal, suggesting local food at the http://www.lochnellarms.co.uk/ which we also highly recommend.

The refuelling man was not keen on filling the aircraft with only around 50 litres of JET A-1 as it would "cost him more to drive the truck to the aircraft". We stressed we needed fuel for the return leg and he did re fuel us but to be met with the negativity at the start was poor in my opinion.

The friendliness score last lost a point or two due to the refuelling man, there did not appear to be much in the way of food at the airport apart from some vending machines, but the hotel mentioned above was only a 5 minute walk away.

Still, a great airport in a stunning location and I will definitely be returning in the future, highly recommended.
