If you are pre-solo, discuss with an instructor before doing any task.
Minimum set-off height3,000 ft
Distance17 km
AirspaceStay below 5,200 ft QFE south of Gransden. If you get low over Bourn airfield, land rather than getting in the way of Bourn traffic!
BGA Ladder Points113
Suitable weather conditionswinds from north with moderate thermals or better

This task is an out and return. Do the task when the winds are from the north-east so you are blown back towards the airfield. Stay clear of the approaches to Bourn's runways.


The village of Cambourne and Bourn airfield are easily recognisable landmarks. Note that the main runway at Bourn points towards Gransden Lodge.
