Whilst reviewing a recent airborne video taken over our strip at the weekend I was slightly alarmed to see three horse riders coming along the lane, I had no idea they were there.

They were probably local riders and knew to expect low flying aircraft but what of drivers who didn't know we flew in the area?

A large aircraft (or an any size) on final approach appearing over the hedge could be enough to cause an accident!

Does any club have the warning triangle sign (in the UK) with an aircraft silhouette on it?

Is it something that we should be thinking about do you think?

Signage is already recommended by the BMFA Cliff, on the approach to our flying fields

But inevitably these often get vandlised

So your signs are made by yourselves? They're not council?

we have our own printed signs on a walk through. By council signs do you mean road signs as in the highway code. These are only really needed on roads. If you are flying over a road you probably need to replan the flying site layout

The BMFA mention the wording of notices to put up where public access is possible but our field is private with a single track lane (often used) running down one side. I was wondering in the council would be the place to go?

Council would be first approach IMHO If no response have some made by a sign company. Failing that paint your own on a good gauge metal and put up on a concreted in steel pole
