Being a student at Biggin, I was alarmed to see how big their fees hike was last month....

GA light aircraft landing fee now increased from £23 to £25 and, incredibly, touch and goes are now £15, up 50% from £10.

Practising a few circuits can now cost more than the hire of the aeroplane.... and there's not even a café!

Biggin may have a degree of commercial traffic and a very efficient ATC, but it seems to be pursuing a policy of discouraging GA and pricing out students away from the airfield.

  • Standard of runway: 5
  • Landing fee / handling charges: 1
  • ATC / AFIS / A/G service: 4
  • Friendliness of welcome: 4
  • GA pilot briefing facilities: 4

Flew in to Biggin from Bristol to drop an a/c off for maintenence, weather was not that good, isolated heavy shows. I spoke to Approach who were very helpful and friendly and joined downwind for 21, nice well kept airfield, but a little pricey in the landing fee for visiting GA. Thanks Biggin

Arrived back here on the way back from Berlin a few weeks ago. About 7pm on a sunny evening it was very pretty. Lots of people still up and around and friendly staff. Lovely.

I fly out of EGKB frequently, which is also where I obtained my PPL(A) + ratings. What a pleasure to fly to/from! If you can get over the £18 landing fee, and the occasional orbit to make way for priority ILS traffic, the controllers are a good laugh - I highly suggest going up to the tower and having a laugh, espcially with the Welsh lass... talk about a good sense of humour!!. A kind reminder that ATC are there to help you.
I have flown at many airports here in the UK, France, Spain, and all over the States. Biggin is relaxed and well looked after.
All in all a great experience.

I have visited Biggin many times recently and have never been disappointed by the very good level of service.
The re-fuelers are always very swift and on-time.
The team (ATC, Handling, Customs and SB ) all seem to pull together to make the place work. A first rate GA facility.
