Luxters Farm





LUXTERS FARM: Private airstrip
 

Operated by: Early 1990s till present day?  Capt Peter Coleman (possibly earlier?)
 

Location: In/near Hambleden, 3.5nm NNE of Henly-on-Thames

Period of operation: 1980s to - ?


Runway:  10/28   950   grass

 

NOTES: This airstrip is fairly unusual in that it is usually regarded as being one way in, the other way out due to high trees at the western end, and, a reasonable down slope at the eatern end. This said, with 950 metres available, many light aircraft could easily and quite safely land and take-off in both directions.

Flying over it in 2006 no mown runway appeared visible but the Zlin 326 G-BKOB flown by Mr Alex Rae booked into Flying For Fun at KEMBLE in 2006 from LUXTERS FARM.

This strip has happy memories for me as we did a low beat up in the ‘Tiger Fly’ DH.82A Tiger Moth based at WYCOMBE AIR PARK when I was flying with Peter Coleman for some aerobatics experience. He then very kindly invited me to fly out of LUXTERS FARM in his Chipmunk G-APYG for more aerobatics. This would have been in 1987/88 as I started my PPL training late in 1988 being very inspired by these and other similar wonderful experiences.
