Cardiff GA

Planning a pick up and drop off at CDF in the next 24-48 hrs.

I understood that heading to the south side towards the flying club absolved one from handling fees?

I tried to call the flying school today but the line was dead.

I seem to remember some discussion about ldg fees at CDF and the future of the flying school?

Are they still in business?

Any idea how much I would have to pay for mandatory handling if the Southside option is no longer an option?

The aircraft is a Mooney

Thanks

Unfortunately handling is mandatory, as per the Notam as the club closed down at Christmas. You would need to go northside and be handled by Signature (01446 712637). It's approx 75 - 25 for landing fee and 50 for handling.

Or Upfield Farm is 10 minutes to the East if 600m concrete is enough and you dont need an ILS

Hi SB, when I landed there a few weeks ago, there was no handling fee at Sig^nt but I did upload a lot of fuel. It was on the North ramp and there were a few GA fixed wings about too.

I thought there were planning issues at Upfield
There are, but it's still operating.

Thanks all who replied.

Cardiff was looking pricey with mandatory handling from Signature (that'll be at least 100 sir).
Swansea closed at 1730 LCL (!) and it would have cost 130 ph or so to stay open for me.
Upfield is too short for my ovation at 600m, I need minimum 800.

After much contemplation I used Miskin Manor in the R44 instead, didn't need ATC, didn't require fuel, security or fire cover.
Lovely people there charged me nothing for landing and parking.
