if you know a 'vrp' that is current so marked on the chart but is actually difficult to spot / recognise from the air, (eg perhaps it was a disused airfield that is now completely built on, or that sort of thing) - can you e-mail CAA DAP about it please to dave dot drake at caa dot co dot uk - cheers. If you happen to know any feature that isn't a VRP but is no longer 'viable' as what the chart says it is, that's a different thing - there is a contact on the chart itself - so for example, Zeals disused airfield was never a VRP but in recent years it was no longer recognisable as a disused airfield (unless you happen to take a very close look at the white 'tower like' house there and realise it is an old military tower - so someone finally told the chart people, at it's gone as a disused airfield on the new charts. Thanks

Idon't know about hard to see VRPs but some grass airfields (and even some with hard runways) are notorious for blending with the scenery enough to make them hard to spot. I can understand it with grass airfields and even more so with farm strips. It's easy to lose a green field when it is surrounded by green fields.
