Aviation South West Ltd for all GA movements into and out of Exeter Airport.
Special Local Procedures
There are a few local things that, as visiting pilots, you must be aware of to avoid complaints (and a comment!!). The first being the runway:-
08 Displaced Threshold
Any Single Engine Piston aircraft landing on Rwy 08 at Exeter must land AFTER the displaced threshold.
Similarly, when departing on runway 26, single engine aircraft are to be airbone by the displaced 08 threshold - which means you will need to backtrack if entering the runway from taxiway Charlie.
Clyst Honiton Noise Abatement
Just off the western end of the main runway at Exeter, there is a village called Clyst Honiton. When taking off from Rwy 26,
you are usually in the region of 500 feet above threshold elevation by the time you get there.
The villagers are (generally) supportive of the airport and operators, and we would like it to stay that way,
so we ask that when you make your turn after departure that you do it either before you get to Clyst Honiton, or after you have passed it.
This will avoid your flying straight down the High Street and creating an unnecessary noise intrusion.
