If your west country farm strip becomes waterlogged and unusable this winter, then help is on hand from Henstridge Airfield in Somerset. It’s offering free tie-down from December 2017 to March 2018, and, of course, it has a hard runway.
Free landing for the whole of December including 31st when there’s a New Year’s Eve Fly-In, with a hot meal for only £7.00.
Henstridge is also running a Christmas Week Special of free tea and coffee from 26-31 December. Discounted fuel will be available during this period, the price of which is to be announced on 2 December. Any pilot uplifting more than 100 litres of avgas/UL91 between 26-31 December (excluding Christmas Day, when Henstridge is closed) will also get a free breakfast, redeemable any weekend in January 2018.
