Flying in to East Kirkby

FLYING INTO EAST KIRKBY

We have our Grass Strip for visiting aircraft. On the photo above I have indicated the line which is used by the Spitfire, Dakota, and any other visiting war birds it is deemed to be the best line to use.
There is a wind sock in the Museum compound next to the Control Tower for guidance.
DO NOT OVERFLY THE HOUSE AT THE NORTHERN END OF THE RUNWAY

AIRFIELD PROCEEDURE
Our grass strip is ready for visitors with any plane welcome! It is used by visiting Spitfires, Dakotas, Mustangs, Bf109's and any visiting civil aircraft. Due to the nature of the land we have here at East Kirkby this strip is part grass and part concrete (please see photo) but the concrete should only be used for emergency run off and it is best for you to land entirely on the grass.

Upon Landing-

1. Taxy up to the museum compound at the South-West end of the grass strip.

2. Park up along the hedge side as indicated on the plan below.

3. Make you way to the NAAFI building to sign in and contribute to the maintenance fee.

Please ring us to check runway is clear and available for landing on before hand.
Our number is 01790 763207.

PLEASE SEE OUR RULES AND REGULATIONS BELOW.
Landing Strip Length-
24/06 - Grass-590m, Concrete-360m
Combined length of 950m (3000ft)
26/08 - Grass- 600m

NB: There is a model aircraft club that fly fairly regularly from the old East Kirkby Airfield approximately 1/4 mile from the landing strip on the south side
