Our well maintained grass runways are orientated 19/01 and 29/11. Circuit height is 600' with SafeTycom frequency generally available 133.300 or 125.000. You may find the ATIS from Accra useful on 113.100 (under trials from 16 September 2011). Locating the runway visually is relatively easy - it lies 3nm North of Krobo Mountain (1000' tall) midway between the mountain and the Kpong fishing quay on the Volta. Other useful landmarks are Osuduku Mountain (1700') at10nm to the East and Yogaga Mountain (1500') at 5nm to the North by North West.
