In '68 it was still fixed wing too. Re-opening to fixed wing aircraft would surely make it viable. Can't find details in Pooleys and as it's unlicenced, it's not in the AD section of the AIP.
Safeskys are intending to provide ADV/ADI and APP services.

NOTAM issued indefinitely suspending the ATZ.

Does that indicate closure?

I hope not but flying there ceased 31 March this year. It would be great to see fixed wing back there again after an absence of about 30-ish years, if only to stop it being built on. It's a great little airfield and has been part of the scenery since the 50s...

I had my first flight there in about 1976, a pleasure flight in a Cessna 172 or 182 with my father and brother. I went on to buy a 172 30 years later!

There seems to be whispers that North Denes has been sold, and money going to be spent to reopen it.
CHC and wind farms mentioned, anyone else heard anything?

Whispers in the Winds

Oh, do spill! CHC I believe owned North Denes, and has been advertised for sale outside the site since the start of the year. By wind turbines do you mean they are going to be built on the site?

I would love it to remain an airfield, even just a GA one. Right on the coast there for those who wish to venture into Great Yarmouth

I've heard supporting the offshore wind farms, present and future ones.
Also been told a CHC aircraft landed there the other day (not confirmed yet), which adds to my curiosity.
The whispers I've heard come from from two separate reliable sources, so make of it as you will

A lad I know who currently looks after the site told me the same thing and too keep eyes peeled, as far as I am aware there are no aircraft there at current although last year there was 2 pumas in storage, the site is still sign posted for sale with Roche Surveyors and the Helicopter you think landed there could be G-EMHE Aw109 which of late has been in and out of the Race Course nearby. I do hope something comes of it only a few years back they invested 300k and bought it up to scratch... if only they had that concrete runway hey... for now I'll sit tight and see what happens.
