Arriving at Wittering by Air

During weekends and public holidays the airfield is controlled by the Gliding Club. The Club operates on the frequency of 129.975Mhz. Please make a call on this frequency if arriving, to ensure you are aware of any special procedures or limitations in effect on a particular day.

Procedures

The Club launches using steel and plasma rope, cleared up to a level of 3000ft AGL, therefore no overhead joins should be carried out.

While the ATZ of the airfield is only up to 2000ft, it is common for winch launches to still be in progress above this height. As a result, transiting over the site below 3000ft AGL is strongly discouraged.
