Hi Guys,

EasyPlan lists the runway length as 540m.
The first post lists it as 900m, but later the length reverts to 540m.

Can someone provide some clarity?

The runway is pretty long or should I say long enough for any sports cruiser and gyro...nice and smooth as well ##

pity they only open at 10 for breakies....crossing 2 ridges back to the norf at that time is sure to give you a better workout than any virgin active.

Yeah, you will get a proper workout, but flying thermals can also be interesting :lol:

I am sure if there are a couple of trikes and you call Jacques, they will make a plan to open earlier as there are many paragliders there early as well ##
