Airfields of the month: Fen­land and Con­ing­ton

Pilot - - FLIGHT TEST -

I re­cently found my­self stranded at Fen­land air­field af­ter an en­joy­able flight there in my Nip­per. Un­able to fly back to my home base of Breighton, I asked if I could leave the Nip­per in a hangar for a few days. Ac­com­mo­da­tion was ar­ranged im­me­di­ately and the guys there couldn’t have been more help­ful. So too were the staff at Con­ing­ton who waived land­ing fees af­ter a di­ver­sion there en route to Breighton. This is what avi­a­tion is all about: look­ing out for each other and of­fer­ing un­con­di­tional help and sup­port when it is needed. I would like to take this op­por­tu­nity to pub­licly thank the pi­lots, Chair­man and com­mit­tee, and fire crew at Fen­land, and the Tower staff at Con­ing­ton, for act­ing gen­er­ously and with­out hes­i­ta­tion. They are all an ab­so­lute credit to GA. Kate Howe, by email
