Fri 19 Jul - John coker - Cranleigh

We visited Truro airfield in Tiger Moth G-ANFM on 16th July'19 and had a very enjoyable visit. Airfield owner, Graham, was very welcoming and helpful to us. There is a visitors summer house with arm chairs,

shower/toilet facility, a kitchen sink and hot drinks supplies left for us to use.

We camped by our aeroplane and in the morning Graham kindly brought us coffee and toast. Wish we could have stayed longer and we will drop in again next time we head west.

We flew into truro 26 august 2017, staying for a couple days. Lovely little airfield , 600m runway good condition, uphill from 32. Met by airfield owner, who is a very nice guy and he drove us to hotel.

Clubhouse still being worked on , but has everything you need, tea, toilet and seating.

Ideal location to base from - car or taxi required though.

Radio is safetycom not as published in skydemon or afe.

Flew into Truro on Sunday 6th of August 2017, Airfield has one runway 14/ 32 which is grass and is about 600m long. We landed on 32 right hand and joined the circuit from the North. We were immediately given a warm welcome by the owner of the Airfield. The club house has been refurbished and is extremely comfortable with new toilet and briefing room.

 

We were offered a great cup of tea before we ventured into the city to see the sights. On return I had an issue with my battery and our friendly airfield manager stepped in with a car and some jumper leads to help us on our way.

 

Thanks Truro Airfield for giving us a great day.

Flew into truro airstrip late last summer the strip was in good condition slight slope but no problem. Only a few hundred yards to a bus stop however the very welcoming owner gave us a lift into truro. The limited facilities(as advertised)did not in anyway affect what was a great experience.we will return.

Truro is easy to find -just look for the wind farm and you will locate it. Circuits to the north of the airfield The owner made us very welcome at his private strip and made me and my colleague cup of tea when we arrived in our Jabirus. A clubhouse is currently being built. The landing fees are cheap at £8 for a single and less for a microlight and given what it costs to maintain an airfield there really is no cause for complaint. The grass strip has a bit of a slope which makes it interesting but its not particularly difficult for a reasonably experienced pilot. The runway condition is fine and there is plenty of parking area.

Flew into Truro on 21.06.2010 in a Robin R100,leaving the a/c overnight. Grass strip was in good condition - grass was short and dry. Friendly welcome and the owner very kindly helped us out with a lift into town which was much appreciated. Facilities are limited but overall a very good experience.

Keith Betteley, Truro is a private strip, in my back garden. I use it to operate my own aircraft and it is unlicensed and there are no club facilities. I am sorry you were not happy with your experiences at my strip - but I never promised or advertised that there were any facilities here.

By the way, the windsock pole that cracked in half in the gales has been replaced and we had a windsock again a few days after your visit. The surface of the runway and taxiways seem good enough for my 172, and a lot better than most grass strips I have operated from.

Having visited 55 airfields during the last 18 months,on a flying visit to Cornwall we landed at Truro,what a mistake.No facilities other than filthy toilets,no windsock,it had blown away,runway surface poor,taxiways and parking even worse. The owner even had the nerve to charge an £8 landing fee.

great little strip. Interesting as its quite short and uphill with a fence at one end. Reach 40 kts drop the flap and pull yourself over the fence!!!

There used to be a training PA38 and instructor but the guy who runs it didn't seem to be much of a 'social creature' so everyone has left now.

Nice strip to practice grass landings on though
