Bristol Airport (EGGD)

Submitted by: Phil Murphy
Bristol Airport is not particularly attractive for GA and is mainly geared up for commercial flights. The radar controllers (who provide a LARS) and tower controllers are excellent, but the landing fees are enough to put off most pilots of small aircraft.

Anticipate departure and arrival delays if you're unsure of yourself or are in a slow aircraft -- commercial flights take precedence in a big way.

All GA flights are handled by Bristol Flying Centre, a professional outfit that can provide just about everything for the GA pilot.
Bristol Airport accepts genuine emergency and precautionary diversions without charge per CAA CAP 667 9.2 (c) recommendations.

    "Bristol International Airport Master Plan 2006 to 2030" states:

    "5.17 No specific forecasts have been prepared for General Aviation 10 . Whilst General Aviation is

    an important component of the air traffic at Bristol, there has been a tendency for such aircraft movements to decline in the recent past and this trend can be expected to continue."

    I wonder why? Perhaps the pricing may be a deliberate policy to discourage you.
