Visited Perranporth on 18/06/2014 in G-ROLY a C172 based at Netherthorpe. Route was IFR via TNT and BCN VORs at 5000ft or so with a lot of cloud around. The cloud soon cleared a little near Cornwall and we had a useful traffic service from Newquay radar.

We had arranged PPR with Perranporth prior to departure and there were no issues in finding the airfield. The A/G operator requested we make blind calls after the initial contact due to him needing to go downstairs. We landed on runway 05. The runways are all in good condition and there were a few local aircraft present.

We were offered the 2 remaining Cornish pasties and a drink with some chocolate cake to finish by the very friendly staff. A lunch was taking place inside with a group of elderly people but we sat out in the warm weather.

The staff were most helpful in getting us refuelled and we learned the recent sale of the airfield had fallen through however it should still survive which is great news.

We filed our flightplan and this was activated upon departure with no prompting by us, great help!

We flew the return leg but decided to have a tour of Lundy Island (by air) en-route.

A great airfield and one we will use when we get round to planning a trip to the Scilly Isles.
