Short runways need pilot skill and suitable aircraft. Note in particular the LDAs on 25 and 33.
Up-slopes on first 100m of Runways 25 and 33. Use displaced thresholds when landing (marked with cones).
Power cables at Runway 33. Use displaced threshold.
Cars and pedestrians may be hidden beyond humps on Runways 15 and 25 when lining up. Be vigilant!
Beware trees on finals for Runways 07 and 15.
There is a track across 25 at the intersection. Not too bumpy but best to cross it at low speed. Nosewheel aircraft should take special care. Do not be tempted to land beyond the track or you will run out of runway!
Watch for cars on this track when using either 25 or 07.They may forget to stop as not all are pilots. Be vigilant.
Take special care when departing on 15/33 because of blind spots which may hide farm vehicles. These should not be on the runway but you can never be sure.
Local residents are already sensitive to aircraft noise from RAF Colerne so please
follow the noise abatement procedures and help us to stay on good terms with our neighbours.
Inbound traffic to avoid overflying local properties so far as possible.
Please avoid Norton St Philip and Farleigh Hungerford, particularly on departure.
When departing 25 turn onto 30 as soon as safely airborne.
When departing 07 turn left or right when safely airborne, but avoiding Wick Farm.
When landing on 25 make curved approach to avoid Farleigh Hungerford.
