RT: For those airfields without dedicated RT the Unicomm Frequency (135.475) will be used.  

These timings are a little flexible and the turnaround times are generally 'shy' of one hour in order to keep the 'ball rolling'. The Airfields have fuel or can obtain it and are of suitable lengh for low experienced pilots but please check first. The legs are planned at around 85 kts in still air and are no longer than 45mins which gives the '8A's more flexibility on their endurance. Due to the long leg between Leicester and Lane Farm and with Birmingham in the way, I've included Wellsbourne Mountford as a 'Staging Post'.

Remember that some of the Airfields, like Oaksey Park are not licensed and Third Party Insurance is required throughout the Tour, so please check your
Insurance, ensuring you have adequate cover. Don't forget to carry your Permits and Insurance details although i'm sure you'll not need them!!
