Details

'Tracy Island' is a farm strip used by Colin and Pete Bishop and others in the Chard area. So called because of its slightly sub-terranean hangar! A windsock is sometimes located just to the south of the runway intersection. Runways are alligned approx. 36/18 (380m) and 25/07 (475m). The field is hump-backed. Circuits to the west.

Update 2009 - runway 25/07 no longer in use.

No A/G radio - calls may be made on 129.825 (microlight  frequency) or 135.475  (safetycom). Call blind if no answer.
