Pilot reviews of Wombleton / Pickering Airfield
18 Oct 09 - Mark Bellamy - Sherburn
|“||Flew into Wombleton this afternoon. No A/G, and so we made "blind calls" on safetycom. Runway 28 / 10 appears to be a former taxi way. It is quite narrow and to the south of the main WW2 field, but the surface is good. There was a large spacious hangar adjacent with numerous interesting aircraft being kept "in luxury". We were made to feel very welcome by the local pilots. There is no club, and hence no GA facilities, but we were not charged a landing fee either. Definitely worth a visit for the beautiful scenery, and apparently the famous Star Inn at Harome (Michelin starred) is only a short walk away across the fields. |

|“||I flew into Wombleton on 10 May. Noise sensitivity is an issue (see Pooleys) so its as well to get a briefing from them first. I landed on 28 which was fine; however there are no runway markings and with a road passing close to the east end you need to watch the undershoot. Note that 04/22 surface is very rough indeed, and I wouldn't recommend anyone to land on it. All circuits are to the south (Pooleys 2005 is a bit confusing on this). Aircraft parking is in front of the old control tower, where there are toilets (and where we got a warm welcome and a cup of coffee). As already noted, there is no "club" as such. |

|“||In response to the previous entry, while there is no 'club' based at Wombleton, the facilities that are on offer are superb, especially the main hangar housing a range of aircraft of many types. Hard to find better housing for a flexwing, the only place I've seen where 'hangar rash' just can't happen!

|“||Hi, I'm based at Wombleton and thought I should post some info about it. Only one useable tarmac runway now - 28/10. No club activities or facilites to speak of. Not much point in visiting then... However, both Bagby and Eddsfield nearby have fuel and food, and Husthwaite too if you're lucky enough to fly a microlight. The latter two also offer a warm welcome. |
