Arrivals & Departures


P.P.R. is essential, especially at weekends when occasional temporary restricted airspace exists due to Duxford Airshow activity.


Please avoid over-flying surrounding villages the R.S.P.B reserve and the noise sensitive area in the NE of the circuit.


High performance aircraft please reduce power as soon as it is safe to do so to reduce noise pollution. Please use VY to circuit height on departure.


Under no circumstances join “overhead”.

Arriving aircraft must first call Duxford Information (122.080) upon arrival in the area. Duxford can provide their QFE and runway in use. Circuit altitude is 800 ft (AGL). Duxford will advise upon changing frequency to Fowlmere Radio (135.705). If there is no response keep making position and intention reports (on Fowlmere Radio) as you complete the circuit, land and vacate the runway.

Aircraft should join at Royston town and either proceed downwind for runway 25 or onto long final for runway 07. Maximum altitude in Duxford ATZ (base and final leg) is 500 ft (AGL).



Call Fowlmere Radio (135.705) for radio check, if there is no response make position and intention reports as you taxi and enter the runway to backtrack.

Prior to departure on Runway 07 call Duxford Information (122.080) to inform them you are “Departing runway 07 at Fowlmere” and remain on their frequency until clear of their ATZ.

Please use VY (best rate of climb speed) to circuit height on departure. Maintain a good lookout as there may be aircraft practising aerobatic routines over and around Duxford.
