Freecall 129.550 MHz for airfield information and joining instructions. Finn Valley is an uncontrolled airfield so all communications from the ground are for information purposes only, all manoeuvres are at the pilot’s discretion.

We will be as helpful as possible with setting up the circuit and assisting all aircraft on arrival and departure. Maintain good visual awareness, the circuit can be very busy with up to 5 / 6 aircraft at any given time. Maintain good separation and do “S” turns if necessary on the approach. Be aware that aircraft will also be backtracking.
