Hi All


Recommended Posts

Hello everybody, new here, found this forum via another aviator pal who owns a Long EZ. I own a Cessna 172, 1964 vintage with manual flaps and 6 cylinder Continental.

 

I keep her on a small grass strip in Norfolk, UK, called Felthorpe. We have two runways, 23/05 and 33/15. Both are quite short, around 450m, and are within controled airspace for Norwich International Airport.

 

I also fly a De Haviland Chipmunk. Terrain around here is real flat and surrounded by coastline.

 

Look forward to posting.

Hi Asthecrowflys,

 

Welcome to the site! Many moons ago (1972-75) I attended the University of East Anglia in sunny Norwich, so I know the area (or used to know it anyway).

 

I remember the whole county was very flat, as you say.

 

Look forward to reading your posts!

 

Cheers,

 

Neil

Welcome Asthecrow,. . . . . nice to see another Pommie on the site,. . . .( the darned place seems to be full of bloody Aussies. . . . .! )

 

Nice aircraft you've got,. . .and love the Chippy as well,. . .many happy hours in those,. . . we'll have to fly in and "raid" your strip sometime,, !. . . I'm based at Otherton, just South of Stafford, alongside the M6. . .and also at Mitton, a tiny little strip 5 NM West of Oth,. . . ( 495 metres, 28/10 )
