The CTAF frequency is 126.0 MHZ and CTAF calls should be made at 10 miles and also at 5 miles as the terrain can block radio transmissions.

Fly neighbourly

Normal aircraft operations are from 8am (Sunday 9am) until 8pm. Departures prior to 8am (Sunday 9am) are allowed but must immediately fly away from the airfield and valley to reduce noise and should not return before normal operating hours. No continuous engine test runs are permitted outside normal hours. Continuous circuits or circuit training is not allowed at any time.
