VFR Coastal Tour

VFR Coastal Tour


The perfect tour for a genuine VFR flight around the coast of England and Scotland.  The legs are short but sweet and pilots are encouraged to plan their VFR route to take advantage of the wonderful coastline of this fair isle.   The tour starts and ends at Popham airfield which has been the Open Air Virtual VFR base in England since our VA began.  (Note that leg times are for direct flights.  Your VFR route may take a little bit longer - depending upon how much you want to discover!).

Start Date:06.08.2020
Allowed Aircraft Types:BE58, C162, C172, C177, C182, C208, C337, DA40, DA42, DA62, DHC2, DR40, DR41, LEG2, PA24, PA28, PA46
