Converted to solar panel field

From a problem report: "Another business has bought the airport and is now using it as a solar panel field. Nobody can access the airport unless authorized."

Airport closed

From a problem report:

Goodbye and thank you from Redlands Airfield.

After 32 years of our operating our grass strip airfield, based in the village of Wanborough to the east of Swindon in Wiltshire, we have now closed.

We would like to thank our customers and supporters for making Redlands a wonderful site for microlights and skydiving - and for the many thousands raised for charity at the airfield.

Not yet visible in satellite imagery (2020-08-28)

The airport opened in 2017, but as of 2020-08-28, it is not yet visible in the satellite imagery that ESRI is kindly providing (Saint Helena is probably not a high priority for updates). You can, however, see it on the aviation charts, and on Google Maps satellite imagery:

Thank you to the person who pointed this out. Please note that is *not* an official source of airport information, and the farmer will need to consult the local authorities in Oromia about the land's current status and whether it's OK to plough.

Clubhouse and visitor parking

There are two gravel-paved visitor parking spots beside the fuel pumps, directly across from the clubhouse. The clubhouse has combo access (a code visiting pilots will have no trouble figuring out), a washroom, and vending machines. There's also wifi, but I couldn't find the password posted anywhere on the wall.

Expect to hear only French on the radio in the circuit.

Airport weather

While the airport doesn't have an official METAR, a member mentioned this in a problem report:

Gimli has an AWOS. It is at

Garman pilot uses CXGH as a Metar for CYGM. It is the Environment Canada weather at the town of Gimli 1.7 nm from CYGM

Still listed as open

The Canada Flight Supplement up to 10 September 2020 still lists this airport as open, with a note warning that "Rwy 10/28 and 16/34 sfcs deteriorating." From various comments, it doesn't sound practical to use, but someone is still keeping it on the books.

"Peace for our time"

This was the aerodrome where PM Neville Chamberlain arrived back from Munich on 30 September 1938, stood outside the airplane, and waved the Anglo-German declaration for the photographers. The airfield was decommissioned in 1947 when the government chose nearby Heathrow as the site for London's major post-war airport.

The runway is closed and is divided by concrete blocks in 3 sections of ~300 meters, better avoid.

Great spot!

Landed here for the first time today, despite having flown around Houston for 20 years. Cozy spot. Nice drop-in over the trees onto 17. Will return!

Great Facility

Well maintained grass strip. Well worth a visit.

Good runway conditions (summer 2020)

I flex into Alexandria just after 9:00 am today. It was my first visit in over 15 years. I checked NOTAMs beforehand for paradrops, and monitored the frequency from about 20 min to to confirm there wasn't any activity.

The grass runway is mowed nice and short, but the ground underneath is slightly unevenβ€”not dangerously so, but you'll do a bit of dune-buggy-style bouncing over the undulations on landing, even at minimum speed, so keep the yoke back in your lap after landing in a nosedragger.

It was firm and dry, though, and even without a headwind to help, my 160 hp PA-28 needed only a bit over half of the 2,200 ft for landing and for takeoff (after backtracking).

Nice flight on a Boeing Stearman PT-13 from 1940!

They have a Boeing Stearman PT-13 from 1940 in perfect conditions (as well as a YAKOVLEV YAK-11 from 1952), and you can have a test flight in them.

Wonderful experience, definitely worth a try!

Friendly airport

I’ve never seen so many people hanging out at a GA field!

Agree on the hard to find

I also could not easily find this airport until I was right over it

Smoothest asphalt around!

Landed here tonight just to see what this airport was all about. Name probably comes in part from the golf course just to the north of the field. Smoothest runway ever.

Welcome to CYPD

Celtic Air took over operating CYPD three years ago. Commercial aircraft ramp fees vary from 200.00 to 400.00, commercial landing fees top out based on MTOW at about 85.00 for a Challenger 350. Private aircraft can expect up to a 25.00 landing fee. Given that the airport exists solely on these fees, we hope everyone can manage with them. Call us at 902-625-2206 if you have any questions.

Great controller

Dealt with a storm popping up over the field right before takeoff, when we finally did depart the controllers really helped navigate the cells

Birds everywhere!

Lots of wildlife on the runway in July. Be prepared.

No idea why these comments are so negative

Great airport running a great training operation. Well maintained facilities and aircraft, great prices and great staff to back it all up.

Stopped here today (6/30/20) to ask Smiling Aviation to handle a ferry permit sign-off for me. They could not have been more fun or more professional. I learned a lot (as a pilot not a mechanic) watching them work. The runway is great, and the gas was cheap. Will be back!

Narrow runway!

the paved part of this runway was only 21' wide!
