Local Fields for Landing

An obvious concern when visiting another site is the availability of suitable fields for an out landing.

Given that the Peak District is known for its hills and stone walls, it is good news to know that many decent, tried and tested fields are available locally.

Camphill is a hill-top site. A major advantage of this is that you can see it from a long way off. Another benefit is that if it becomes apparent you’re not going to make it home, you have an extra three to five hundred feet to descend so there is much more time to plan. Better still, we have used that height to find some fields for you.

The local field landing document describes fields we have used to land out safely. It’s worth looking at this in conjunction with Google Earth, and fixing some options in your mind.
