Cotswold Airport (EGBP)

Kemble is, so far, an exciting development for GA. It used to be an RAF base -- former home of the Red Arrows — and was bought by a local business man who committed the airfield to a great programme of development.

There's no doubt at all that the Kemble team is great at events. Even the most popular days, attracting thousands of visitors, run with clockwork efficiency. It's not surprising that the PFA chose Kemble for its annual rally.  

There are lots of attractions at Kemble, such as fly-ins, the Great Vintage Flying Weekend, Kemble Air Day. Put it on your "must-go" list!

Cotswold Airport accepts genuine emergency and precautionary diversions without charge per CAA CAP 667 9.2 (c) recommendations.

    3 Nov 12: BAC move

    Owing to the closure of Filton in 21st December 2012 , after 18years, 5months and 2days the Bristol Aero Club " BAC" 'moved' from Filton Bristol to Cotswold Airport (Kemble).

    23 Nov 11: The Flying Club Kemble

    James Kilford - UKGA Editor

    The Flying Club Kemble has suspended trading, not to be confused with the Kemble Flying Club.  A letter was posted in their office window explaining the suspension, stating that rising fuel costs, reduction in available flying hours at Kemble and fewer hours flown by members meant the business was not viable. Other schools and clubs onsite all seem to be thriving and still in business.

    The restaurant AV8 is now under new management and is undergoing major refurbishment. An express service for pilots needing a quick turnaround is promised, alongside a wider range of quality meals and drinks.

    13 Feb 18 - Graeme Craven - Sevenoaks

    Rapidly becoming my favourite land away destination, Kemble's Grass runway 26 is nice and firm, even after a wet start to February, as are the parking areas : 10 out of 10. Whilst there are one or two muddier dips in the grass taxiways, this is an airfield in great shape. Nice, friendly ATC (Did PPR by radio en route - no reply on the land line in advance). Friendly reception £ 12 landing fee and great lunch at AV8 which even during a busy half term were rapidly turning over the covers to make room for new diners. Departed from the tarmac after backtracking down the runway. Check Cotswold Airport's website for noise abatement. Circuits at 1,000 ft AAL at time of writing. Gotchayas : Avoid Oaksey and South Cerney. We landed in a left hand circuit following an overhead join and departed on a right hand circuit so just watch the height separation on the downwind leg.
