Davidstow Cornwall


#1

Does anyone know if it’s ok to fly on the Davidstow disused Airfield?

Hi @Ron and welcome to Grey Arrows mate.

I’m not familiar with the area, does it show up on the NATS app with any warnings?

Hi Ping, thanks for the reply, not that I’ve seen but to be honest I’m still trying to learn everything and finding it very difficult to navigate the Nat’s and AIS websites.

The UK’s highest ever airfield.
Landed a Piper Cherokee on it many years ago … some time after it had already closed operationally.
Got the permission of the farmer that owned it … but it took about ten lower, and lower, fly overs to get the sheep off the runway enough to see which bits were still suitable.
Chances are I was the last person to ever land a plane on it.
