RAF Tsurington

RAF Tsurington is a themed Post War Era Aerodrome designed exclusively for light prop aircraft. Although jets are not allowed at any time, helicopters may stop temporarily to refuel at the Aerodrome. It’s a good place to refuel or take a time out to relax on the observation terrace after sampling a cocktail in the Lemon Drop Martini Lounge Bar during your travels over south of Nautilus.

Originally designed for light prop aircraft only during the 1930s era, with a criss-crossing layout (runway 09 for take-off and 27 for landing, with the shorter runway 11 / 29 only for emergency use), the airfield's runways were rebuilt in the 1960s with a new single 192m x 20m concrete runway design, making it now suitable for light jet engined aircraft also.
