OLD MILL FARM: Private airstrip
Note: These pictures are from my Google Earth © derived database.
Operated by: Ms Charlotte V Dadswell
Location: Just SE of Lurgashall village, about 3.5nm NW of Petworth town centre
Period of operation: From 2021 to -
Note: The hangar was constructed, (see the 2020 picture above), for G-AKUO to move in.
Runway: 04/22 230 grass
Note: According to the Google Earth © measure, 210 metres around 2021.
NOTES: Most of the initial information came from an article in the March 2023 edition of Light Aviation magazine. This location now being the base for the Aeronca 11BC Chief, G-AKUO, (ex N9730E). In 2023, (and hopefully for years to come), Ms Dadswell was the CFI for the Goodwood Flying School.
However, seeing as this 'Guide' is mainly devoted to our aviation history, she mentions that her father once had the Aeronca 11AC Chief, G-IVOR, (ex EI-BKB), based here. Records show this was from March 1984 until August 1986.
