New ATZ - Portland East/West

30/04/2024

A permanent ATZ has been established around the Portland Heliport which affects flights from Portland East and West. It is NOTAMed now and will appear in the UK AIP in due course. The club has obtained a letter of agreement to fly within the ATZ subject to the procedures set out in the agreement (LOA Wessex HGPG). It is essential that if you intend to fly Portland you familiarise yourself with this agreement and abide by it.
The site guides for Portland East and Portland West have been updated reflect the changes.

MONKSDOWN - temporary CLOSURE
This is a Wessex members only site that has been temporarily closed at the request of the landowner because of the livestock he currently has on the land.

This has been a particularly sensitive site that was lost to the club for a couple of years but was reopened with strict conditions applied by the landowner.

Any attempt to fly the site during this closure is likely to close the site permanently

A reminder - if you are intending to fly at Barton-on-Sea, you *MUST* phone in to the council AND you *MUST* also have had a briefing which *MUST* be recorded by YOU updating your membership record on the club website.

If you fail to do any of these and you decide to fly, you are likely to risk the club losing the site.

Please read the Barton on Sea, site guide!
