Husbands Bosworth Airfield is the northern part of an old WW2 airfield laid to grass – the airfield is 505ft AMSL. The local area is gentle rolling landscape with numerous landable areas around it.

 The contest area spans England from Wales to East Anglia and from the south coast to the north of England.

The bulk of the contest area is flatland, largely arable or mixed farming, or rolling hills and ridges with mixed agriculture and woodland. To the west there are larger hills and mountains to over 1,000m, which can be reached in stronger conditions.
