COVID-19

As of today Tuesday 24th March North Coates airfield will be closed to all visitors whether coming by road or air.

These restrictions are in accordance with Government advice and will remain in place until advised further. This also applies to the Spring Flying Meeting which was scheduled to take place on 9th & 10th May. This has now been cancelled.

Pilots of visiting aircraft to the airfield on published fly-in events, are asked to wear High-Vis jackets/tabards while airside.

The reason for High-Vis is that at fly-ins we struggle to identify flight crew from general public that have wandered airside (sometimes in error and sometimes on purpose).

We are trying to avoid potential accidents caused by the general public getting too close to aircraft and turning props.

Aircrew who are wearing flight suits need not adopt the High-Vis Policy as long as the clothing identifies the person as flight crew. The reason for this High-Vis Policy is solely so we can identify pilots in normal clothing and then we don’t have to have club officials running round asking people who they are and what are they doing airside.

We appreciate your corporation in making our fly-ins safer for all.

Many thanks

Steve Charters Chairman
