    Lots of letters, but I don't think our only J so far: Jubilee Farm is still there as I believe the owner died last year

    Does anyone know if it's still an airfield?

    I've added what I can find, looks like those "Js" could be a problem next year me thinks. Having said that, it's a good job there are a few more "Ps" please Bob, I don't fancy going to "Papa Stour"

    It may be brilliant for Paramotors but not Microlights, a lot of them are just fields, maybe old airfields but not operational now. I have only checked the ones local to me (South Yorkshire) and you can discount all the Doncaster airfields, Bawtry is none existent too.There is no airstrip at Nostell Priory and I wouldnt advise landing at the Cleethorpes airfield, you might get a bit wet. Having said that it is another tool to help plan the challenge.
    CAUTION: Aviation may be hazardous to your wealth.

    Yes, J and U seem to be a bit of a problem for me.

    Hey, I've been thinking, I may do it in order. That would certainly make it interesting.

    If I could, I would like to do them all in order and consecutively, it would look great in the log book! but as I'm based at an airfield very near the start of the alphabet I'd have to do A and B one day, then back home, then the next time I was flying I'd have to do D - Y before I could return home to sunny Chatteris. But a good challenge for someone based in the middle of the alphabet....?
