Pilot reviews of Stoke Golding Airfield

17 Jul 08 - Greg Hoskin - Cambridge
Great little airfield. Rang in advance (although could of used the website) and received a enthusiastic welcome and simple instructions. Airfield was easy to find and parked on small taxiway (as instructed), would recommend it to any helicopter (or fixed wing) pilot.
  • Standard of runway: 4
  • Landing fee / handling charges: 5
  • ATC / AFIS / A/G service: 5
  • Friendliness of welcome: 5
  • GA pilot briefing facilities: 5

Flew into Stoke Golding today. PPR can be done by e-mail directly on the website (see link on "basic info" page).

The airfield isn't too hard to find; it's 1 nm NE of Nuneaton VRP, and at 16 nm on radial 040 from HON VOR. A road runs parallel to 08/26, and the runway itself has white threshold markers/numbers. It helps if you know what to look for! 08/26 is 525m x 25m, and even on damp/wet grass like today, that was plenty for the Robin. Better plan for a short field landing though; I found that flying a flatter than usual profile on final helped - except a telephone line 500m from the 26 threshold, nothing stands in the way.

The airfield was deserted so I can't comment on facilities etc. but having flown in the area many times, it was nice to discover a little airstrip! There was a nice feel to it, so I'll be back on a busier day!

Sorry for picture quality; viz wasn't too good.

Wonderfully friendly little grass field in the middle of some lovely countryside. Short(ish) walk to several pubs within range. I went there for a fly-in with quite a large crowd and we were all made to feel tremendously welcome.
