I cannot speak more highly of this airfield. To my mind this is what GA is all about: friendly/polite when phoning for PPR, great cafe, £10 landing fee, air/ground was concise but helpful, and goodness me what a setting. I will be going back often.

I doubt there is another flying club in the country which has such lovely staff.
Just a quick note to thank you for the service today when we called in. What a fabulous change to come across a happy, vibrant and cheerful bunch of people. I'm looking forward to returning.
I have to say Compton is a sheer delight, a credit to all who have a hand in running it. Lunch was great, aircraft variety superb, you should run courses for other airfields showing how it should be done. Expect to see us again soon.
Lunch was excellent - the food was superb. My parents loved flying - you have created two new converts. We rounded off the day with traditional coffee and cake. Perfect! Thank you for arranging the gorgeous weather too, keep it up!

Visited in December from Dunkerswell, great setting on top of a hill. Food and drink in the cafe excellent.
Everything I have heard about CA was true or even better! Lovely lovely airfield!
Flew in to Compton Abbas this morning on a windy but clear day. Really picturesque. Helpful A/G. Fantastic restaurant on site for full meals or cakes. They have a pilots only lounge where you can get lots of advice on planning weather etc from the locals. If you want a small friendly airfield to take friends for a meal or snack you can't really beat this one.
A gem of an airfield set high on a spur of land in Dorset. Beautiful approach to 08. Despite its popularity, with pilots and the public the friendliness of all concerned was excellent, with no sense of complacency. The food was good quality and very good value and all facilities very good. If you haven't been, go. There are great walks to be done from the airfield too.

A truly excellent airfield, well run and very organised. Pilots can order food when they sign in and jump the queue which is really helpful when the cafe is busy.
