Middlezoy Aerodrome Joining Instructions In order to deconflict with traffic from Westonzoyland Microlight site ( who circuit to the East at 800ft ) it is important to follow the instructions below:

Join overhead not below 1500ft and proceed to the South East not descending until abeam Middlezoy village when you can then descend to 500ft and make your approach to the runway in use ( 26/08 is primary, wind permitting ) along the indicated tracks.

Make blind R/T calls to “Zoyland Microbase” on 129.830. Do not expect a reply but listen out for other aircraft. Suffix all your calls with “ Middlezoy”. eg - “ G-FRED approaching left base runway 26 Middlezoy”

At all times avoid the villages of Middlezoy and Othery and the Model Flying site shown on the photo.

Maintain a good lookout at all times ( there may be non-radio traffic around). If a go-around is necessary do not climb above 500ft until abeam Middlezoy following the briefed tracks as above.

Aircraft parking is currently on the grass north of the hangar and east of R/W 26. Booking in / out is in the adjacent Nissen hut.
