WMO03894, Guernsey Airport, Channel Islands

49 25 59N 02 35 53W
Altitude 101 metres

Class 2-5, indeterminate, need detail information. Reason: Class 4 “Away from all projected shade when the Sun is higher than 20°.”

Without shadow might be Class 2.

UHI, close to airport runway, apron, buildings, otherwise minor, is windy island off French coast.

Not going to make a large difference to filtered data but the tourist board might be less than pleased about missing sunshine

Cynical mode, see what matters, the looks, the emotion

I’ve sat behind right seat on approach through low cloud in BN Islander, local pilots get the centre-line appearing spot on through the murk, full intake heat on, don’t want ice. Grandstand on the panel.

A fascinating collection of aircraft photos here, lots of unusual fixed and rotary, crazy paint schemes too http://guernsey-airport.blogspot.co.uk/

A flat on hourly or better full sun data.
