Very friendly club feel to the place. From the helpful phone call for PPR (or you can use their website form), clear noise abatement circuit, good A/G radio (helpful directions to the fuel bowser) through to convivial atmosphere in the cafe. £10 landing fee, or you can join as an associate for £60 and enjoy free landings there and some partner airfields all year. Landing on 25 hard you fly directly overhead a scrapyard but there are no particular hazards to avoid. Radar service from Lakenheath (the nearby American base). It was unusual to hear them give out the pressure setting to their own aircraft in inches while we got millibars/HectoPascals. Jimmy's cafe is run by an American who offers a range of hearty American-named dishes, but there's still a good old English breakfast available too. All at very reasonable prices.
