The Piper Warrior, which had three occupants, was completing an overland flight from Ameland to Lelystad. When the aircraft was five miles west of the airport, the pilot asked Lelystad for airport information. He was informed that runway 05 was in use, with a right hand circuit and a QNH of 1018 hPa. This was read back correctly by the pilot of the Piper Warrior. He then asked if a straight-in approach for runway 05 was available, but this was refused by airport services. He then flew into the circuit area via the normal route.

The report can be found in the Quarterly Report Aviation for the third quarter of 2016.
