Sheffield City Airport (EGSY) (disused)
I was on a flight which had to divert into Sheffield City recently due to low-lying cloud over the Pennines and beyond. With no PPR, the tower guy was very helpful as were Lynn and Dawn at reception who assisted in getting us some accommodation at short notice. The guys at TAMS, John and Andy, were exceptional for an enroute repair and without exception, we received nothing but help. I must heartily recommend Sheffield City as a GA stop.
It's unfortunate that long term plans for GA are not good since the runway is likely to close, with helicopter activity becoming the main focus. But if I'm over there again, I'll drop in and say hello. Thanks again.
