Pilot Guide

Welcome to the Birmingham Air Traffic Control VFR website. Here you will find some useful information regarding Birmingham’s airspace.

Birmingham Airport is located 5.5 NM (10.2 km; 6.3 mi) East-Southeast of Birmingham city Centre, at Bickenhill in the Metropolitan Borough of Solihull within the West Midlands, England.

Birmingham aerodrome is surrounded by Class D airspace so it is important that pilots familiarise themselves with our airspace to help reduce the risk of an airspace infringement.

There are a large number of infringements in and around Birmingham Airport’s Airspace. The attached VRP photographs (courtesy of Mike Roberts, Managing Director of Take Flight Aviation) will be helpful for pilots.
