Visiting Pilots:  There is a landing fee payable to Davidstow Flying Club of £5.00.  This also entitles the visiting pilot to one days temporary membership of the Davidstow Flying club.  As PPR is essential, it is possible for pilots wishing to visit to be emailed a temporary membership form which can be filled out and returned before departing for Davidstow.   Alternatively a visiting pilot can fill out a form on arrival.

Aim to land on or just after the numbers which are clearly marked on all six runways.  Please note runway 24 is displaced by approximately 100 meters.  On landing taxi down 02 and turn left on the perimeter track and stay on the left near the grass.  Take the first exit to the right marked by a boulder on your left and follow round to the Aircraft Parking area.  

The Clubhouse is clearly marked with a letter C on a yellow background.
