Sandown is still available BUT
  1. Not licensed
  2. All 800+ yards are in good condition
  3. No ATSU, all calls to "Sandown Traffic"
  4. Pay landing fee at the cafe/caravan by the main gate
  5. No fuel
. I flew in there on Wednesday and it was a very sad experience as the owners are trying to kill it. Moggy
