AIRFIELD CONDITION

The airfield condition continues to improve and the overall condition is "soft to firm", now to the point of the following restrictions being applied.

No private vehicles on the airfield, there are still places, particularly at the northern end on the western side, where vehicles other than tractors can be become stuck.

Do not land short on RWY 19, a displaced threshold of 200m is applied.

Towplanes shall not taxi in this area, the crown is best for landings, but "off centreline" still has some soft patches.

The airfield is at a critical stage- Do no damage! If you create a rut, it is your responsibility to get out the roller promptly and fix it.
