Formerly RAF Bicester’s aerodrome, we now operate an active private airfield with a rich aviation history. Our base offers private flight, fly-in events and training and experience opportunities with supporting facilities.
The airfield at Bicester Aerodrome lies north of and adjacent to the town of Bicester and is an unlicensed private airfield. Visiting pilots are warmly invited to fly in having gained prior permission (PPR). There are two grass surface runway directions to give weather condition flexibility:
24/06 – 650 metres long by 50 metres wide
34/16 – 790 metres long by 50 metres wide
AVGAS 100LL available with both physical and pre-paid (online) options.
Long term and overnight hangarage for your aircraft is available.
