Lands End Airport

Cessna 172 G-AWWU

One thing I was planning on doing on this trip to England was to fly on the Sikorsky S-61 to the Scilly Isles. However when I got to Penzance Heliport all flights for the next two or so weeks were booked out, so the helicopter flight was not going to happen.

This what I had come for, but did not happen.

We then headed off to a small airfield near lands end and booked a scenic flight.

The airstrip is grass and was not smooth so the aircraft wobbled about on takeoff.
We flew around the coast of Cornwall and saw the attractions like Lands End etc.

Landing was quite rough as we approached the airfield the aircraft bounced about due to some quite powerful air pockets and finally landing back on the rough airstrip.

It is worth seeing places like that from the air rather than from the ground in my opinion.
