Depart Land’s End (EGHC) and fly east towards the port of Falmouth (waypoint), then northeast eventually crossing the large china clay pits to land at Roche Barton (EGRO). Leave southeast to the waypoint at the Eden Project then east to Plymouth. The waypoint is at Plymouth Hoe and the Citadel. Now we turn northeast to cross Dartmoor before turning back towards the coast. Passing the waypoint DAWLY we can fly up the River Exe estuary before turning to make our approach into Exeter airport (EGTE). After Exeter airport we skirt the north side of the city of Exeter and continue up the Exe valley (feel free to fly low here) to Stoodleigh Barton (EGUH) farm strip. Next head southeast to Dunkeswell (EGTU) then to Branscombe (EGTQ) on the coast. We can now follow the coastline all the way to the waypoint between Weymouth and Portland. Turn across Weymouth harbour on our way to Bournemouth airport (EGHH), then across The Solent to the Isle of Wight, landing at Bembridge (EGHJ). The last leg takes us past Portsmouth, after which we can fly up Southampton Water to our destination at Southampton airport (EGHI).
