Circuit Parameters

Gamston Airport has several neighbouring communities, namely: Elkesley, Gamston, Eaton, Ordsall and Markham Moor.

To reduce the impact from aircraft noise, pilots are reminded to observe the standard circuit pattern, which is published on Sky demon and Pooleys. All Gamston circuits are 1000ft QFE and standard overhead joins are preferred.
