Visited Coventry airport first time. On positive side, very welcoming, friendly and helpful ATC, superb tarmac runway that seemed endless in length, reasonable landing fee of £13. The down-side is mostly COVID19 related as café and toilets were closed; people in one of the office blocks kindly allowed us to use their toilets. Oh, and I didn’t like being told-off for not wearing high-vis jacket; so, I told them back that I read pilot information on the website very carefully and didn’t see any mention of high-vis being mandatory. I felt that the pilot information on their website should have mentioned that although the airport is open, the facilities are not and about the need for high-vis. During my phone call to the ATC for a PPR as well, I was not told about these two essential pieces of information. It is out-rightly a GA airport although microlights are welcome. It was very busy with a lot of GA training activity – I was 3rd in line to land. No other visitors at the time of my visit, probably related to COVID19. I wouldn’t recommend going there till the pandemic restrictions are over, then I might have another look.
