Due to the reduction in traffic levels at Birmingham Airport, we have opened up a booking system for pilots to request a training flight. All requests for training flights will be required to book on the day, it is the responsibility of the Duty Manager to approve/decline training slots at the start of each day factoring traffic, forecasted weather, planned equipment outages and runway availability. To book a training slot, please call ATC during office hours 0830 to 1600 local, our ATC contact number can be found in our AIP. For information on our Fees and Charges, click Here.
