Offering a wide range of recreational aeronautical activities and facilities for anyone with an interest in aviation. A unique historical airfield close to the city but outside controlled airspace, providing facilities for recreational and commercial operators covering all facets of aviation. If it flies, it is welcome at Watts.
It's now been 7 or 8 weeks since the upgrade work on RWY 12R/30L was completed. Since then the surface has been watered religiously (by both nature and human effort) to encourage the grass seeding to take root, grow and spread.
After a slower start than some folks expected, the surface is now showing a rapidly increasing coverage of existing and new grass seedlings. The summer thunder storms and humid tropical heat has no doubt contributed enormously. Remember that the type of grass planted grows out more than up 🙂
With at least 4 months until the runway will be reopened - it's all looking good!!
