Circuit Information
A map showing Eshott Airfield and the direction pilots need to fly in.

Circuit height 1000ft QFE.

Join overhead at 1500ft and descend on the deadside to 1000ft before joining crosswind.

Airfield elevation 197ft AMSL.

Runway 19RH is generally preferred due to its length and to allow you a choice of tarmac or grass. This also allows for a circuit away from noise sensitive areas.. Pilots must be above 20ft at our boundary fences as the land is used by the public and our neighbours.

Noise Abatement

The airfield has a number of noise sensitive areas nearby. Please see SkyDemon for noise sensitive areas including Felton, the village to the north.

The airfield has a weight limit of 5700 kg except in an emergency.
