Thanks - just read that and it seems ok.
So if I buy land with a reasonably flat area of grass and use this as a runway I will be ok? I have a PPL(a) and it will be my own land (so I give myself permission to use it). I'm going to be very careful and not endanger anyone else or their property.
Is there any restrictions on how often I can use the land for flying that anyone knows about without obtaining planning permission for the use of the land as an airstrip.
look under legislation
