Pilot reviews of Vallance Byways Gatwick Airfield

14 Mar 12 - Simon Roe - South Hykeham
FLEW INTO VALLANCE ON SATURDAY A GREAT EXSPERIENCE THIS IS NOT A FIELD FOR THE FAINT HEARTED 50FT TREES AT ONE END SHACKLTONS AT THE OTHER AND SO CLOSE TO GATWICK RUNWAYS (400M) GATWICK APPROACH AND TOWER WERE EXCELLENT AND REALLY HELPFUL NICER THAN MANY SMALLER AIRFIELDS, THE OWNER IS A VERY NICE CHAP AND VERY WELCOMING. THERE'S LOTS TO SEE AT THE MUSEUM IF YOUR INTERESTED IN OLD AIRCRAFT. THE RUNWAY IS NOT VERY LEVEL SO CARE IS NEEDED. A REALLY GREAT PLACE

Well - what a day we had. Gatwick cleared us through the zone, 4 orbits later we spotted you. Those shackletons dont arf make it easy ... The wind played havoc and the runway a little on the "tight" side, but my god, its better than digging for neolithic in the silt at the henge. Can i say what a charmer old Harry was, and we loved the fact that he didnt want to take our money even when we begged him. £56 + vat for the landing fee and some extra visits for my passengers to go around the museum pieces. I think the future for this is assured, we all loved coming for the day and thank you for making this so special. Tony R and myself along with the Prof and his jumper are coming back next year. Dig dig dig as we say...
