Arrival and Departure Information
Due to the limiting size of the airfield Netherthorpe is strictly PPR by telephone. Visitors will be given a PPR number which must be quoted upon first radio contact. Without a PPR number, we cannot allow you to land as we have no proof that you have received a verbal briefing regarding the weather and runway conditions.
Netherthorpe ATZ and Doncaster CTA
Please note that the upper limit of the Netherthorpe ATZ lies within the Doncaster CTA. Doncaster have recently notified us of their intention to prosecute any and all transgressors now that the zone has been established for over a year. Please ensure you obtain clearance from Doncaster Radar if required.
When arriving please make an overhead join at 1800ft if there is any other traffic in the circuit. Circuit height is 800ft. For noise abatement reasons, please do not overfly the surrounding villages and in windy conditions please ensure you are not carried over them - particularly when flying the base leg for runway 24.
Aircraft arriving or departing to the North or East should contact Doncaster Radar on 126.225 as soon as it is safe to do so.
Unless you are a regular visitor and are familiar with Netherthorpe you must get a safety brief with an instructor before departure.
