No internet address available so far. Use phone instead, but beware they don't speak anything but spanish. AFAIK MOGAS is available but better check, airfield is actually in the middle of nowhere and I'm not sure any gas station is available in the vicinity. I use AVGAS and was forced to refuel in Jerez.
FPL may be submitted by phone, but if you fly to Morocco you have to pass custom in Jerez (Morocco is not Schengen area).
Reply to @lsalv: thanks a lot for the information regarding Trebujena airfield. I intend to have a stop over next month (mid-april 2012) before going to Tanger - Morrocco. Can I file a flight plan to Morrocco by phone (Jerez twr). Is mogas available at the airport or do I have to go to gas station ? have you the internet address of airport manager. thanks and regards. Michel.
Nice airfield close to Jerez de la Frontera.
Wind is usually strong (ca. 20Kts) but amost aligned with runway. Be careful in case of southern wind (rare). Approach is a little tricky because runway is on top of a hill and ground height difficult to appreciate.
Pay attention to neighbouring LE-R154 (GND-SEA/6000ft AMSL, ROTA AB).
Remember to close FPL by radio with Jerez TWR 118.55 when field in sight or after landing by phone Jerez ARO +34-956150106.
Airfield is usually unattended. Coordinate ARR and DEP with airport manager +34-677428329, +34-619558362, +34-625461216.
AVGAS not avlb. MOGAS O/R.
Hey, I was stationed at Moron AFB 1961-1962 3973 csg Base Comm. Our barracks was right across from the base chapel, end of our barracks faced the motor pool and flight line. Is anyone out there who in base comm or during the same time period. Would be fun to talk to some old buddies. Alive in well in Bellingham,Washington A1c Paul Vodopich
I also was at Moron AFB in support of RF-101C Voodoos from the 38th TRS out of Ramstein, of the 66th TRW then in Laon France, for a NATO winter excercise circa 1964. Great place to get away from the dank German weather in the winter. The Spanish AF was still flying F-86's (not Gina's). They would do endless practice dive-bombing runs as we sunned ourselves from the roof of the barracks. Saw one fail to pull out of his dive. Seems that was not an unusual occurance. Have fond memories of a nice and lovely Spanish gal by the name of Signorita Caridad Romero, who sang at the Airman's club. Our airplane by the way wound up in "Upper Haystack", shortly after the US got kicked out of France due to one of our planes buzzing Charley DeGaule's Nuke Plant. About the same time we transitioned to RF-4C's and most of our pilots went to SE Asia, where several got shot down. I salute Capt. Grubs who did not survive captivity. The flight to/from Moron was in the Wing's Gooney bird, which was later converted to a "Q" model Spook Ship and also served in SE Asia.
