Pilot reviews of RAF Brize Norton

5 Dec 12 - Paul Bond - Walsall
Flew into Brize Norton 29 Oct 2012 by invitation to my Flying Club to see the ATC facilities. Everyone we met was happy to answer all our questions. Parked our PA28 next to a C130 and on the main apron were VC10's, B747, C17's. B767 and Tristars. The new Voyager was yet to arrive. Whilst there a Tristar was carrying out touch and go's! A great day and thanks again to all those at RAF Brize Norton

4 Jul 08 - Andy Hawkins - Swindon, flying from EGBP
I did the majority of my PPL training at Brize with RAF Brize Norton Flying club. The facilities are obviously excellent, full ATC inside controlled airspace, with a good sized training area to the North, as well as a number of local airfields for landaways and the like. Not much in the way of facilities at the Flying Club itself, but the station obviously has a number of places where food can be bought, and on site Met facilities so you can always talk to a forecaster before a flight. Club itself also has Internet access for flight planning purposes. My primary reason for choosing them was the cost, but having shared the circuit with DC-10s, C130s, C13s, Antonovs and having held waiting for the Red Arrows to transit the overhead on their way to Fairford, I can safely say I've been exposed to some things you're unlikely to see at most other airfields! Landing fee for visiting aircraft is likely to be steep, but as a Flying Club member all landings etc. are free.
