Starting a course in two weeks and will be looking to fly somewhere in the area. It seems all roads lead to the site close to Guildford? Anywhere else thats decent in the Leatherhead , Guildford area?a

Hi Aldamski,

I live in Dorking, the place in Guildford is informally called Barry's airfield which is also a campsite. I haven't been there for quite some time so am not sure what it is like these days. However myself and another guy I met recently fly occasionally from local friendly farmers fields around the Mole Valley area.

The trick is keeping access to those fields by not over using them or causing any problems for livestock etc. A fear of losing access due to such over-use is why people tend not to share their location publicly on forums like this. However, building up a good rapport with local land owners is the best way to start, most have a weak spot for free bottles of wine or other such fine things.

Hi Adam,

I'm not too far from you (Ashtead), and like you I am looking for local flying sites. I am a member of Green Dragons which has a site in Woldingham, but they have a rule about not flying on your own which can makes things tricky. I love this sport but unfortunately without access to a local flying site it becomes a challenge just to get into the air.

Where are you doing your training?

Gareth
