It's often mentioned that Predannack gets used as the relief landing ground for Culdrose, but on a typical week, how much action does the airfield actually see?

I was down there just after Easter and didn't spot anything operating from the airfield, not sure whether activity has declined in recent months.

It can vary a lot. Some days you'll get next to nothing out there, while other days you'll get almost constant use. It's also used extensively for night flying as there is less light pollution there than at Culdrose, so less problems with NVGs, and it means Culdrose doesn't have to continually operate with lights out. The fire training area also gets regular use by both Culdrose's own fire crews as well as some civilian crews.

Thank you both for your answers. Sounds like complete pot luck then if I'm ever down that way. :)
