26 AUG 15 - Mid-week flight into Swansea from Thruxton in G-CGVC

Called to PPR, very friendly and was on my way. Tracked over BCN with a Basic Service from Cardiff Approach (who were excellent) and then down into Swansea. Swansea A/G service were very good too.

Airfield is large and easy to find. Runway good but the apron is in need of some TLC, as are the facilities.

Airfield was pretty much empty, Skydive Swansea were not operating that day so only a handful of people using the facilities.

Landing fee is now £18 (incl VAT) which I think is a little expensive given the facilities or lack thereof. Compared to Lydd £21 (incl VAT) for example. Maybe lowering the prices a little would attract more landings, the scenery in the area is beautiful and I am sure the airfield economy would benefit.

Visited Swansea (EGFH) on 22/08/2013 as part of a CPL QXC from Netherthorpe (EGNF) and Haverfordwest (EGFE). Aircraft was a C172, G-ROLY based at Netherthorpe and Lyndon Sandie was PIC. Routing from Haverfordwest was via Pembroke Dock and St Clears. The airfield was easy to spot and was pretty busy with traffic but an excellent radio service was provided by Swansea radio. The runway in use was 10 which is the shorter of the two but still ample for GA traffic. Both runways are in excellent condition. The actual airfield is large and it is a shame not to see it used as a commercial operation anymore. Lunch was excellent value in the on site restaurant which seemed popular with the locals and children plane spotting too. Lovely weather meant lunch was served outside. Our routing back to Netherthorpe took us out over Mumbles and back into the overhead before heading for Tycroes for a house photo opportunity. Would definitively visit Swansea again, some lovely flying to be had in this part of the UK.
