Thorney Island Airfield technical

Submitted by: Toni Busuttil-Reynaud

With reference to Thorney Island, please note that at weekends and bank holidays, model aircraft flying takes place on the southern end of runway 01. The club concerned is Chichester and District Model Aero Club(CADMAC,cadmac.co.uk). Microlights usually fly part of their circuit overhead at a good height to make us aware of their presence, then land on the northern part of the runway.

Regards, Toni Busuttil-Reynaud, Secretary, CADMAC
