Our main runway is 23 LH – 05 RH, and we fly overhead at 1000′, descend to a circuit height of 500′ over the tip on the dead side, and join crosswind.
Please observe the no-fly zones in red on the picture below, avoiding flying overhead our neighbouring farms and houses.
Under NO circumstances should you overfly or encroach the airspace above and directly around the neighbouring glider site – Rufforth West.
Please note that the original RAF airfield has been split into two sites and whilst it may appear to be one airfield, it is not. Rufforth East, the microlight and gyrocopter airfield is to the East, closest to the city of York and your approach should be from the East or South, avoiding the glider site to our west.
