Description

This landout site lies 20km SW of Springfield aerodrome and 4.5km NE of the Rakaia rivera. It’s on a golf course!

The yellow square is where L140 is located and is shown in the image below. Note the position relative to Springfield aerodrome (the heart symbol in the top right corner) and Mt Hutt on the far left.

 

A very clear letter H shape and the two ‘space invaders’ in the top-left quadrant are what make this landout site easy to spot, the yellow line is the actual strip
That’s about 660m of strip to land your glider on
