General News

In 2011, another section of approx 100M2 of new tar was laid on the airfield. The improvement of the airfield is to continue.

The airfield will continue to be improved, and all landing fees are re invested into tar and equipment!

We are looking for the next improvements to be made to the airfield. If you have useful suggestions please contact through the Contact page.

Castle Kennedy Airfield is ideally positioned for access to the new Stranraer Marina.

Fly In Updates

This years fly in will be on Saturday 31st May 2014.

The fly in will be all day, with refreshments from 10.00 - 16.00. A salad buffet, bacon rolls, teas, coffee and cold drinks will be provided by excellent local chef Douglas Lisi.

There will be a total restriction on GA flights in and out of the airfield between 13.00-13.30, and 15.00-15.30 local, when there will be demonstration flying of large model aircraft, subject to weather.

There will be no Air Ground radio service this year, and pilots should use Safetycom, 135.475, within the normal regulations.It is suggested that pilots call at about 10 nm with their position relative to the airfield and altitude (ie "10 miles east of the field at 2000 ft"). A further call with joining intentions at 5 nm, followed by the normal circuit calls. Pilots in the vicinity who know the runway in use and advisory QFE are encouraged to pass this information on to inbound aircraft.

Circuit direction is right hand for 08, and left hand for 26. ie all circuits to south of runway.

Please send a book in form, or telephone as soon as possible to help with catering numbers.

We also have a twitter site where updates will be posted.

Heres hoping for good weather, and happy and safe flying.

Please note that the undershoot area at the threshhold of runway 26 has been cleared of the soil and grass that was irrepairably damaged last winter. This may create the impression of servicable runway. The area has not been swept, or surface repaired. While the undershoot area is useable, there are stones present. Please continue to use the white lines as markers for serviceable runway.
