Covid Guidance GA Recreational Flying 15 May 2020

PRIOR PERMISSION REQUIRED-PPR 

The latest government guidelines now permit solo flights for owners and those current to do so. The decision to allow this rests with the airfield and if it is prepared to permit this .
In order to accommodate our aircraft owners, and to prepare Andrewsfield to a safe return to operations we will begin to introduce small measures.

To allow Private Owners to fly ,we will operate an email booking out and booking In system. The social distancing and gathering rules are still in place so you will need to  notify me of your intended flight date and times etc . PLEASE USE PPR-NOTIFICATION email info@andrewsfield.com . The main gate will be closed so please unlock (code is 2009) and then shut the gate on entering and leaving. The authority will be monitoring so please adhere to all instructions given.

There will be no facilities available however we will be opening the fuel pumps Monday and Friday mornings 0900 – 1100 . Please email info@andrewsfield.com to book fuel uplift once paid.
A staff member will be dispensing fuel so the procedure will be for you to remove your own fuel caps .. only our staff member will be in contact with the fuel pump operation, so no contamination should occur.
PLEASE MAINTAIN THE 2 M DISTANCE AT ALL TIMES

To enable us to open the fuel we would ask that you make a BACS payment on account , prior to uplift, we will then issue a paid invoice by email ensuring that no personal contact is required. If you can not pay in this way please call me to discuss other options Mob 07710453927.

AIRFIELD FACILITIES

The airfield and clubhouse still remain closed, so there is no briefing facilities , Air Ground Radio or Fire Cover ,
The airfield is NOTAM closed, so only based aircraft and those using MK Aerosupport are permitted. As the Clubhouse is  closed  there are no wash room facilities available at present.

CIRCUIT & NOISE ABATEMENT

It is so important at this time that circuit discipline and good airmanship is carried out as the local residents will be on the look out.. Please use normal circuit procedures and  if in the circuit Squawk 7010. Also continue to make blind position calls on 130.555 .

PERSONAL PROTECTION EQUIPMENT -PPE

You should ensure that you and all on board have your own PPE and sanatising equipment. Many of you share aircraft so it would be wise to have a group risk assessment in place to protect all of you..

Many airfields may not be operational so please bear this in mind when flight planning
