Ray,
Win Green appears to be just to the East of, & pretty much in line with, the Compton Abbas airfield runway (if this is still an operational airfield)
Just asking in case there may be flying restrictions?

Hi Peter. That is correct as to location, but I don't know if there are any restrictions re height etc, I have not noticed anyone observing any such restrictions before but I haven't been there for some time. When the full size are landing from the east, they seem to go behind the hill (so on the south side) for an approach from memory, but in reality it is quite a way from the airfield as far as approaches are concerned being about 2 miles away. It can be quite a busy hill for slopers if the wind is to the north, but you do park at the top, so there is no climbing involved.
It's always calmer indoors :D

Yes, Win Green is just within the FRZ for Compton Abbas. However an MOU has been agreed with the airfield, signed on behalf of the Christchurch & District Model Flying Club and the Wessex Soaring Association, giving permission for members of both clubs and their guests. So, if you aren’t in either of these clubs it would be prudent to contact a committee member of one of them and ask to be invited.
