By the way, sheep become very used as do all animals to aircraft. But sheep in particular get so used to you that they will play chicken with you when your coming into land and you sometimes have to do a few low swoops over them to get them to scatter out of the way !!!
And if you survive for 7 or more years without any objections to anything legal or illegal, you cannot be stopped by any laws.
so good to be back on home soil.
i have been departing and landing there for the past 6 years without PP.
but there is no fence around it which could class it as a change of use from agricultural land.
and the goat must be tethered because she chases me along the strip!
(i would use this field perhaps a dozen times in a year at most)
There's a further bonus to having sheep grazing on your strip - their small feet smooth out the ground creating a fabulous runway surface.
The only down side is - the stuff they insist on depositing on the ground You need to wash it off your aircraft before it hardens otherwise it sticks like superglue
I normally would only perform a powered landing in conditions of high or indirect winds, this would be perhaps 2 out of every 7 landings, but i must emphasize that i have it well practiced and all dangers are carefully considered first.
