ATC still has closures on some days. Any such closures will be NOTAMed each day. They will also be listed (in local times) in the daily briefing - see link above. During closure periods (or after the tower closes in the evening), the following rules must be observed:
  • All radios must be on the tower frequency (126.555)
  • All landing gliders must make blind downwind calls. If you are in a non-radio glider you must take a hand held radio.
  • Tugs must not land during closure periods so please consider the timing of launches when getting close to them.

Our Google Event Diary May take a short while to load. Click on diary entries for more information and for details of expedition locations. please advise the office if you think we need to add any events.
