Airfield/Airport Background[]

Popham is a small airfield located in Hampshire located right next to the A303. It is home to the Spitfire flying club which has around 500 members and is also home to a small flying school as well as a number of private aircraft, including a few that are available for rent from the airfield's owners.

The airfield has 2 grass runways and is well suited for GA aircraft. However, runway 03/21 is only used on certain dates so 08/26 is the primary runway. The approach to 08/26 is always at an angle to what the approach normally should be due to noise abatement rules, and the approach to runway 26 has a white arrow to guide pilots in.

Every year a number of events are held including a New Years Day fly-in and a Microlight Trade Fair. There are also a few motorcycle and model flying events held throughout the year.

X-Plane Development[]

A rough apt.dat has been made but alterations to the DSF tile will need to be made to smoothen out runway 03/21.
