OLDFIELD - AS AT APRIL 2022

Oldfield is our new flat field flying site and is located in the Winkton/Sopley area to the east of the main road. Access is from the west via Harpway Lane.

The area for our strip is currently under development and will not be fully operational until the end of May 2022 at the earliest. The rules for Oldfield are here. Please read them before you go flying. Safety is of prime importance and a sketch showing the No-Fly zones is below.

The first fliers at the field must contact Bournemouth Air Traffic on 01202 364152 and tell them flying is about to start. the last flier to leave must tell them flying has finished for the day

For the first time in many years we have a field where the location of the Pilots’ Box (or “Flight Line”) can be changed to suit the wind direction. The first fliers at the field, should set up the pilots’ box according to the wind direction, (click on the link to see the layout) then place their models in the pits area, 15 metres at least behind the pilots’ box, then any chairs immediately behind that. If there are members of the public in the area, they must not be overlfown. If necessary, flying must stop until they are clear or until is is possible to fly without overflying.

Access is via the gate in Harpway Lane or alternatively (perhaps after a visit to the farm cafe?) via the route shown below from the farm entrance

For the combination to the gate shown on the map, contact the Committee
