This document contains information about unlicensed landing areas. These are not surveyed and recorded to licensed aerodrome standards, hence details given are approximate. You must check the stop press and ensure that this book is the current edition at the Stop Press website.
Every care has been taken to ensure that the information contained in this publication is correct. However, even with the greatest care, inaccuracies may occur and the author cannot therefore accept responsibility for such errors or omissions but would appreciate advice should any be discovered.
