Top marks for Sandtoft

I flew up to Sandtoft yesterday with Nick Lambert. We were up there for Nick to fly the Savannah VG for the magazine, something we've been meaning to do for a while now.

There was loads going on with fixed-wing, rotary and microlight training taking place and a nice little cafe serving a good range of food at fair prices. The place was really bustling despite it being a Wednesday afternoon, hardly a traditionally busy time of the week for flying schools. Despite the variety of traffic, it was also really good to see the air-ground radio used to an absolute minimum - bucking the trend of many air ground stations to act as if they were FISOs, or even full air traffic. From what I hear, there's a great little social scene at the airfield too. Hurrah!
