Sywell Primary School avoid

To All Fixed Wing and Micro Light Pilots using Sywell Aerodrome

In the interests of good relations with the local community, Sywell Aerodrome asks Pilots when taking off from 21R, 21L and 23 to please make a normal climb out straight ahead to 500 feet before making a turn. This should ensure that you are clear of Sywell primary school.

Many thanks for your co-operation
