Upfield Farm Airfield (disused)
No fuel on airfield. MOGAS available on request.
25 Mar 09: Planning issue
Ken Bowen the operator of Upfield Farm needs our help.
He is trying to obtain details of folks who have flown into the strip between March 1995 to December 2003 on a planning matter
Kens contact details are phone/fax 01633 279922.
If any one sends me an email I have Kens email address but I did not want to place it on the web.
10 Dec 09: Upfield Farm to close?
There is no way back and it is final.
Ken Bowen has lost his epic battle to stay open and we have lost a critical South Wales facility in an area with very few options.
We've all been asked to leave and a mass exodus is under way.
How sad is that?!
|“||Given the more or less hostile attitude of Cardiff to GA nowadays (last time I picked up pax there the Flying Club told me if she left her car in their car park overnight it would be towed away!) the whole of SE Wales is very poorly provided for.|
Upfield Farm on the other had is friendly, helpful, welcoming and reasonably priced, and I would rather drive 30 minutes to get home from there than 15 from EGFF. I have visited on a number of occasions and always without problems of any kind. We need more like Ken.
