Just a reminder to all pilots intending to visit Kilkenny. Please ring in advance for PPR (087-1255241). As for many grass airfields, the exceptionally wet winter took its toll on the runway. This is being addressed at the moment with additional drainage over the worst affected area. While the drainage work will only take a few days (during which time the runway will not be available), the grass will take 2/3 weeks to recover. During that period the available runway length will be 400m.
As a consequence of the above, we have decided to postpone our Fly in which was planned for the 24th May. Will post a new date in due course.
