Pilot reviews of Seighford Airfield

3 Nov 09 - Rob Swain
Previous posters seem to be confusing the powered strip with the gliding one.

The gliding strip is a wide strip parallel to the Great Bridgeford to Woodseaves road. This is at 90 degrees to that strip and further from the road.

As far as I know the gliding stip discourages powered flight in and out which is disappointing as I only live 3 fields away. I've never managed to work out when the powered strip operates, which is a pity as I'd love to operate out of there!

Seighford never really encouraged visiting a/c as far as I know but it is also a very active Glider field

This airfield has been used by several light aircraft for several years. It has a hard surface runway in good condition and is privately owned by a local land owner.

The recent retirement of two regular pilots from flying due to old age and the death of the senior land owner have brought about the using of the runway by a motoring organization thereby stopping any flying except when the runway is not in use by the organization, a hit and miss situation as far as flying is concerned.

In my opinion this airfield is a missed opportunity as far as general aviation is concerned which should have been seized years ago.
