Nice run over to Calais

A bit short but lovely day for flying and the restaurant there is great. can only wish for some LPV approaches in the UK!

It was indeed a great day to fly. We landed at Calais just after 1300 for lunch chez Freddy (and very good it was too)

Must have seen you. What were you in?

EGTK Oxford

We parked right next to you I think assuming you were in the very nice PA46 - 2/3 adults and one child?

That was us! Sorry, I would have said hello if I had realised.

Next time :)

Perhaps we should organise a forum lunch somewhere ?

Sounds like a plan.

If you go to do a approach and land, have a bite to eat but don't leave the airport do you still have to let customs know. Rob

I did but just on their web page. No-one showed up.

Rob,

yes I would say so. Using Calais in order to fly to or from the UK without notifying customs as required would technically be like using a (non-customs) farmstrip. You can't just make a stop there and just declare "hey, but the aircraft, passengers and goods remained the same". Sure would be nice, though...
