Airfield Road Closure from 27th September

We have been informed by Island Roads that they will be carrying out resurfacing works to Newport Road for 8 nights from Tuesday 27th September. The road will be closed from 19:30 to 06:00 each night. However, the works will be staggered from Morrisons roundabout to Sandown Airport, then Sandown Airport towards Apse Heath, so access should always be possible with a slight diversion.

1st September 2016

AVGAS 100LL Fuel is available on-site at our self-service pumps (credit/debit card required) which allow out-of-hours operation. Unfortunately we have had to increase the price to £1.66/litre to reflect our wholesale cost.
Please note if you do land out-of-hours there is an honesty box by the entrance to the control tower to pay landing fees (in cash). Many thanks!

Spamfield Microlight Rally

Dear all: the new team at Sandown look forward to welcoming you to the largest microlight fly-in social of the year-
SPAMFIELD 2016!

This year, the airfield is under the new management team of Danial Subhani and (current World Microlight Champion) David Broom.
For those that don’t know, Dan is an enthusiastic microlight pilot and serial entrepreneur, and has already had a large impact on the facilities at Sandown. Attractions this year include:

  • Fully licensed bar
  • A variety of food options including the on-site bistro and Dan’s famous BBQ cooking
  • Live music by multiple bands- something for everyone
  • Aromatherapy and hydro-massage showers
  • Hot tub spa
  • New “wellness” pilot relaxation area
  • Giant social firepit area
  • Take part in a World Record Attempt for most departures in 1 hour on Sunday morning
  • Free camping for the entire event (included in the price of registration)

All you need to do is register here (if you haven’t already).
There is no need to PPR on the day, but you can check the eghn.org.uk website or call the pre-recorded message on the tower telephone for airfield details if unsure. Use of radio is non-mandatory, and at busy times a simple airfield information broadcast may be repeated on 119.275MHz. Late-comers out-of-hours are welcome.

Please respect the local noise-abatement rules (no overflying surrounding built-up areas, and please climb straight ahead for 1nm before turning on climbout).
