I flew to Welshpool from City Airport Manchester (Barton) with a friend and out two lads aged 6 and 7.

Lovely scenic flight and arrival into what was a lovely runway with helpful staff.

The airfiled is definitely under used but so glad we visited as we had a great time and were made to feel very welcome.

The lady who operated the A/G also took out reasonable landing fee and made the coffee!

Facilities are limited but adequate and so much more than just a tick in the book of airfields I wanted to visit.

I will lost definitely visit again.

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.

We flew to Welshpool today in our Cherokee. They were friendly on the phone when geting PPR, and very friendly when we were there. The runway is lovely, the approach is exciting with the airfield being at the bottom of a valley with quite high ground on each side. Great scenery on the way in. Welshpool is a nice town, only a £3 taxi ride away, and has plenty of pubs to eat in. We walked back to the airfield from the town, along the old canal. Well worth a visit, we'll be going back, theres a castle 1 mile from the airfield to visit too !
