Following the successful completion of Phase I of the Aerodrome Drainage project, which has seen 8km of drainage installed and the runway surfaces regraded with a 1.5% crossfall, we have reopened our two principle runways 06/24 and 14/32.
As part of the runway improvement work, the runways have new perfo number designators and markings.
All of the runways have been standardised to 30m, and by reducing the width of runway 14/32 it has revised the obstacle profile and allowed us to make improvements to runway declared distances.
New signage is in place and particular attention should be paid to holding points C and D. To avoid runway incursions aircraft must not proceed beyond these holding points until cleared to do so by Air Traffic.
Runway 10/28 has been taken out of service for essential maintenance until further notice. When reinstated it will be reduced in length to 700m to avoid any overlap with runway 14 threshold and the proposed lighting profile. The subsidiary runway 14L/32R is withdrawn from use permanently.

Helicopter training areas are available in the â€˜Triangleâ€™, the VOR Field and Northern Side Grass at the discretion of Air Traffic.
To preserve the new surfaces of the runways, touch and go's will only be permitted at the discretion of Air Traffic and is dependent on a robust inspection of the runway surface. To avoid damaging the new grass, we would ask that hard braking is avoided and when taxiing slow, shallow turns are executed instead of small radius turns.
There is currently no lighting provision on any of the runways, however a new lighting system will be installed in the future.
Updated information will be issued by AIP Amendment and any changes will be promulgated by NOTAM. Please ring Air Traffic Services if you have further enquiries on 01243 755061.
Please visit the Sales and Operations team within Goodwood Flying School on arrival for the payment of landing fees and fuel uplift. For historic aircraft manufactured before '66 Goodwood continues offers complimentary landing. Please note, all visitor fuel and landing fees must be paid for prior to departure.
Due to the high level of aircraft movement, all visiting aircraft are requested to apply for PPR.
Please note all aircraft must avoid flying over Pagham Harbour Nature Reserve below 500 feet.
Noise preferential routes
Strict adherence to the NPR is necessary to avoid overflying highly noise sensitive areas in the locality. Please refer to the procedures below to familiarise yourself with the noise routeings.
Runway 24 â€“ Right Hand Circuit
Take off: Turn right as soon as practicable to do so and establish a Westerly track. Maintain track until West of built up areas. If remaining in the circuit, ensure that crosswind and downwind track is West/North West of Lavant village. No practice engine failures or low level circuits are permitted on runway 24. Avoid overflight of Lavant village. Avoid overflight of Lavant House Stables riding school.
Landing: No restrictions
Runway 06 â€“ Left Hand Circuit
Take off: No restrictions
Landing: No low approaches over the built up areas in the undershoot. The threshold is displaced.
Runway 32 â€“ Right Hand Circuit
Take off: Turn right 20Âº at the upwind end of the runway to avoid East Lavant village. Maintain that heading until well beyond the village. No practice engine failures after take-off until well beyond the village.
Landing: No restrictions. The threshold is displaced.
Runway 14 â€“ Left Hand Circuit
Take off: Take-off: Turn left 10Â° at the upwind end of the runway to avoid overflying the school and houses under the climb out path. No practice engine failures after take-off until well clear of the school, stables and houses.
Landing: No low approaches over East Lavant village. The threshold is displaced.
