Remarks

Runway 08L/26R - 641 x 30 m grass
Runway 08R/26L - 625 x 32m grass

The Standard Circuit Join is to approach the field overhead at 1800 feet on the Barton QFE.
Then to commence a descent on the deadside to circuit height of 1000 feet Barton QFE. Keep a good lookout for other aircraft that may be joining the same circuit pattern.
Non Radio aircraft (Remember we are PPR Tel 0161 7891362) should overfly and observe the signals square to check the current runway in use and circuit direction.
Fixed Winged pilots are advised that the helicopter training circuits are carried out at 500 feet underneath the fixed wing circuit.
The helicopter circuit climbout and final approach however, remain clear of the runway in use, and only 'downwind' calls are made by these.
VOR/DME information in the first image. (desktop view only). See website for full set of procedures.
