Microlight only field. PPR ESSENTIAL for all visiting aircraft.
This is because Hunsdon is INSIDE the Stansted CTR & TMZ 2 & operates under a Letter Of Agreement (LOA) with NATS. A condition of the LOA is that visiting pilots obtain PPR & a full briefing. Do NOT land at Hunsdon unless you have positive permission & instructions from a club officer (on the number below or see the contacts page) - leaving a message on an answerphone is NOT sufficient, even if you are familiar with the airfield & have landed there before.

Aircraft without a transponder may visit Hunsdon, but must follow a very specific routing & height whilst inside the TMZ. Instructions & options will be given with PPR. If you have a mode C or mode S transponder, you may follow the normal requirements of the TMZ until on approach to Hunsdon, then squawk 7010 (set to ALT). This tells Essex Radar you will be operating in to / out of Hunsdon. Transponder equipped aircraft must still PPR as Hunsdon is INSIDE the Stansted CTR.
NOTES:- ALL approaches from the south of the airfield @ max. 900' AMSL (set altimeter to Stansted QNH), or 650' above airfield level (QFE = Stansted QNH - 9 mb). Check Stansted ATIS 127.175 NO training circuits by non-club students Avoid pink hatched areas Do NOT EVER fly East of the power lines running North/South along the Eastern edge of the airfield, or North of Marshland Wood, due to Stansted CTR. Remain clear of Hunsdon to the West, Hunsdonbury & all settlements. Glide descents whenever possible. Broad
