Pilot reviews of Rufforth Airfield West

22 Oct 10 - Stephen Nuttall - 0.5 NM North of HMS Nightjar

Visited Rufforth West on Wednesday 20 October inbound from Full Sutton and outbound to Blackpool. A very friendly and well organised gliding field (there is also a microlight field at the east end). There is a hard runway 35, (36 in 2010 AFE guide) and also a grass runway 35, (not listed in my AFE). Hard runway (at the 35 end) was in super condition, but the local A/G operator advised that the top end had suffered from a couple of days car racing a short time before. Snacks (crisps, chocolate, etc) and tea available and there is a super club house with lots of information about the wartime Bomber Command 6 Group squadrons based here. I really fancy going back to take a longer look around at this lovely and friendly airfield.

  • Quality and value of food / drink: 3
  • Standard of runway: 3
  • Landing fee / handling charges: 5
  • ATC / AFIS / A/G service: 4
  • Friendliness of welcome: 5
