|Mutxamel aka Muchamiel Guide|
Airfield frequency 123.5
We will publish our English/Spanish RT guide in early February.
The runway is asphalt, aligned 12/30. 12 is the usual direction.
The runway is asphalt. The parking/tie down areas are ordinary ground which is quite stony so beware propeller damage. It is safe and easy to push the aircraft close to the tarmac before starting up. Helicopters, large twins, even jets emerge from the four main hangars at any time, so it is safest to use the side entrance (left hand track here) to drive around to our Shadow.
Note the windsock!! This was one of the few non-flyable days. Nice, warm and sunny though.
Slightly further to the right of the previous picture. This is the radio office plus flying school and clubhouse.
This is what it looks like from
If 12 is in use then it's a RH circuit
If 30 is in use then it's a LH circuit
Final for 30
Mutxamel is on the edge of Alicante airspace so take care too far to the left on base, downwind or crosswind. The airfield is 490' amsl.
The local area
The local area is very arid, classified as semi-desert. There are few roads and only one railway. But you have a clear coastline so you don't get lost. The noticeable features are the plastic polytunnel greenhouses. These are lake-sized and very conspicuous. Also the golf course - this is artificially watered and the only bit of greenery in the area.
Note the two white greenhouses top left.
This is at the coast by the town of Campello that butts onto Alicante and is where you turn inland. Don't go further south. The two greenhouses are in the distance.
If you steer between the greenhouses top-left and centre-right you soon spot the golf course and you will be able to find the airfield.
