bholleran Posted October 26, 2011 Share Posted October 26, 2011 This post is a summary of the the following, Location, Rules and access control to the Hambrooksite site. ALL PILOTS WITHOUT EXCEPTION (INCLUDING VISITING PILOTS) WHO INTEND TO ATTEND THE HAMBROOK SITE MUST BE FAMILIAR WITH THIS POST. IF YOU ARE BRINGING THEM TO THE SITE MAKE SURE THEY ARE BRIEFED. Access to the site: We have no direct access to the site as it is fenced all the way round and can only be accessed through a single locked gate. We have to arrange for the gate to be unlocked in advance, Charlie the person who unlocks the gate lives on site and requires notice to unlock it for us. This means that if we turn up and notice has not been given we WILL be seen and it will be reported back to the landowner and may mean losing the site. We do not want this to happen, we also need to be reasonable about the times we can contact him and the amount of notice given. Access can be arranged through EITHER: Mark Morgan: 07731599660 Barry Holleran: 07748986084 Please do NOT just send BOTH Mark and I a text message asking us to have the field opened up. It has happened a number of times in the past and is a bit annoying for Charlie to have both of us contacting him. The LATEST time we can ask for access to the field is 18:00, for the following day. But we CANNOT guarantee that it will be granted at that time, so it is strongly recommended that you allow as much time as possible for notice. We will contact you either verbally by text or on the forum once we have confirmed access. DO NOT TURN UP TO THE FIELD UNLESS IT HAS BEEN CONFIRMED. Location of the site: PLEASE NOTE THE NEW NO FLY AREA TO THE NORTH EAST CORNER OF THE SITE!!! This is a link to the site on google maps. (Should work on all browsers), this will give you the opertunity to view the surrounding areas. http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=http:%2F%2Fwww.agilesoftwaredevelopment.biz%2Fhambrook.txt&aq=&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=33.29802,79.013672&ie=UTF8&z=14 This is a summary of the above link that can be viewed in the forum. The area's in Red are "No Fly Zones" The area's in Blue are "Only above 500ft agl" The area's in Yellow are "Only above 1000ft agl" Address: Priors Leaze Lane Southbourne, Chichester, West Sussex PO18 Latitude: 50.848533° Longitude: -0.895173° Rules: 1. No fly zones must be strictly observed. 2. Permission must be sought and granted before turning up on site. 3. All rubbish must me taken from site. 4. Vehicles should be driven around the perimeter to the desired take off location. 5. No running of engines \ flying before 08:00. 6. All air law must be observed - in particular the low flying rules with respect to nearby buildings. I trust that everyone understands the reasons for these controls and will make sure that they are followed. Thanks Barry Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
