We flew into Kittyhawk last Friday in our C42 and stayed longer than planned as the welcome by Oliver and his friendly colleagues was excellent. With two runways, the aerodrome is great to land in and has interesting home aircraft to look at. Oliver has big plans for this site so I suggest that you keep an eye out for them. Will definitely re-visit this year.

I've recently started flying from Kittyhawk as tug pilot for Southern Hang Gliding Aerotow Group. We have been made very welcome there and Oliver and Lee have gone above and beyond to help get glider towing working for us. The runways are in good condition and there are decent facilities including parking. Although it's not far from Deanlands airfield at Ripe the circuits are well planned and there are no issues with conflicting traffic. So if you are looking for somewhere to base your aircraft this is a place worth considering.
