Flight Departures - Microlights
Departures will normally be from runway 12/30 from the runway centre point (CP) following the directions given on the day. If the weather conditions allow, runway 20 will be opened for departures only at the following times (local):
Saturday 14:00 to 15:00
Saturday 16:00 to 17:00
Sunday 15:00 to 16:00
These periods are during the demonstration flights by exhibitors and marshals will direct departures. Departures from runway 20 will only be for Microlights which are departing the festival permanently, pilots wishing to make local flights and return to the festival must use runways 12/30.
Taxi from the parking to the runway centre point CP along the north taxiway. On reaching the holding point TCN, indicate if you need to use the full runway for a 'long' departure. Otherwise follow the directions given to depart from the CP which will be manned by the flight director or one of his deputies.
Immediately after takeoff, turn onto a heading of 150 degrees and climb to reach 1000ft as soon as possible. Remain highly vigilant as there will be dense traffic in the area of the aerodrome, the Paramotors should normally be operating to your right during the departure procedure. Once away from the airfield, resume normal flight rules.
