Pouance airfield Pouance airfield

The airfield has a 700m grass strip and no landing fees. Fuel is available from the service station opposite the field entrance.

Le Grenier a Sel

Is a self catering gte right on the edge of the airfield. The accommodation is simple, with most rooms having bunk beds. We have booked the entire gite which can accommodate up to 20 persons but will be filling it with just 10 so there will be no requirement for anyone to use an upper bunk, unless they so wish.

Getting there

By air, the normal route to Pouance is via Abbervlle and Bernay. It is a total distance of about 300 miles from the Kent coast.

By road, Pouance is a 6 hour drive from Calais (excluding breaks), or 3 hours from Caen.


The accommodation for this not for profit, social event, is estimated to cost just over 100 per person.

Bookings are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis and rooms will be allocated at the time of booking.

Contact Jim Clewer for further details and information on how to book.
