Visited Welshpool on the 15th June 2010, flying in from Netherthorpe. Easy to find and Shawbury LARS offered a great service en route.
Did not get a response on initial call from A/G and the second call another pilot replied with QFE.
Easy enoughto find from the east, its over the big hill :)
Downwind was close in and at 1500feet due to high ground, final was longer than usual but offered no problems for landing on 04.
Very quiet when we arrived, (tuesday) and £10 landing fee was paid. Not the most welcoming arrival really and no food on as it is only available at the weekend. The airfield seems in great condition and the runway is excellent. Has lots more potential in my opinion.
Not a great deal to do so left earlier than planned.
Would visit again as maybe a stop off en route to Haverfordwest.
