Pilots Page

Headcorn aerodrome is also known as Lashenden. ICAO designator EGKH. Visiting pilots please note that Headcorn is PPR in order that pilots can receive an aerodrome briefing. Non radio aircraft are accepted (again strictly PPR). Customs facilities are available from 0900 to sunset for aircraft going to, or returning from the continent. Flight plans should be filed with ATC at least 40 minutes before departure. An electronic flight plan form can be downloaded by following this link and a GAR form can be submitted here.

Headcorn is the base for one of the most active parachute centers in the South of England with jumping taking place up to 15,000 feet. It is therefore prohibited to join overhead the airfield. The parachute Drop Zone is located 300 metres northeast of runway 21 threshold therefore go-arounds on both runways should be conducted straight ahead or to the South of the runway.

Circuit direction is left hand on both runway 28 and 10 with a circuit height of 1,000 feet aal. After landing taxiing is to the South of the runway as soon as possible, parking where available. Care should be taken when taxiing as some areas of the maneuvering area are poor. Runway designators are not provided.
