Taxiways “C” and “D”

 

We now have two new Taxiways in operation. These run parallel to the runway. We would appreciate it if all fixed wing aircraft would use these at busy periods instead of back tracking the runway. These taxiways are restricted to aircraft with a maximum wing span of 12m.

In his acceptance speech, Alan Cathcart, commented that it was not the airport’s infrastructure that was important in achieving the award but the friendliness and helpfulness of all the full-time and volunteer staff at the airport.
