London Biggin Hill Airport reopens for general and leisure flying

“London Biggin Hill has remained open throughout the pandemic for essential travel only, and now we look forward to welcoming back all our resident light aircraft pilots, heritage flights and others wishing to visit the airport over the coming weeks and months.”

Despite the lifting of the overall restrictions, a new safety notice has been issued by the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to ensure alignment with current government guidelines for the Resumption of Flying.

Spiers said: “While this is an exciting time for the general aviation community, Covid-19 is still with us, and it is imperative that all pilots are aware of their safety responsibilities ahead of taking to the skies after a break from flying.

“As such, in addition to the safety notice issued by the CAA and in accordance with social distancing measures in place at the airport, we have put together a list of essential safety guidelines to support pilots using our airport.

“We encourage all pilots to register on our online safety and compliance portal via the airport website.”
