Pilot reviews of Stoke Airfield

25 Jun 08 - Fred Cornell
Just visited--warm welcome--flew in in PA28-180--2 up.

not a field for the inexperienced.--as said bend halfway--best to land on 06 with some headwind.Watch the pylons and huts along side the runway.

What might be called "challenging".

  • Standard of runway: 3
  • Landing fee / handling charges: 5
  • ATC / AFIS / A/G service: 4
  • Friendliness of welcome: 5
  • GA pilot briefing facilities: 4

Visited Stoke Airfield, on the north side of the Medway estuary in Kent.

Owners say PPR not neccessary but I called anyway as my Lockyears farmstrip guide gave an out of date frequency for the a/g. The right frequency is 118.925. Frequency may not be manned in which case blind calls should be made, however when I flew in there was somebody on station to advise me of the wind and activity.

Stoke is a busy microlight field and although the length is quoted as 650m it is quite narrow in places, with hangers tight along the north side, and the runway is curved!! With the help of a stiff head wind I got in and out without too much difficulty with the Jodel 1050 but this is probably not a field to be visited with a GA aircraft until some farmstrip type experience has been gained.

I got a friendly welcome and landing fee was only £4. A cup of tea and cake set me back only another £1.20 so vey good value.

Easiest way to find it seemd to be to locate the container port 1 1/2 miles to the east, on the north side of the estuary and then head due west and join overhead. the strip is along side the railway and some power pylons so is pretty easy to spot (if you check out Medway Microlights web site there are some good photgraphs). Circuits to the south for the 06 / 24 runways.
