I just wanted to say thank you to the great reception we received at the Pilot’s Pal Pub. We had a great time. The people of Biggin Hills are a very special people and well never forget our visit. I hope in the future to revisit the airport again. Again Thanks

Jacob seems to have some technical understanding of aviation. Do you happen to have anything to do with a DC3 that operates out of Biggin occasionally??

I think that the airport should reduce its landing fees so that people learning to fly at Biggin Hill are not forced to to practice touch and goes and landings at another airport.

Biggin will never serve scheduled flights. The main reason which everybody is forgetting is that it has NO roads which sensibly link it to any conections, which give it easy access. THE ONLY way Biggin wil be anything is for the M25 to have access at Westerham, then it will be viable. Until then FORGET IT.

I believe that biggin hill airport has been in need of development for a long time and the receint inprovements should be encouraged. I believe that a market exists for a business jet service serving London and the south east. How about using the airfield for Millenuim dome weekend charters!. But please lets not forget the importance that the flying schools play in the viability of the airfield.

The June airshow is set to continue well into the future. The additional show in September celebrating the Battle of Britain looks like being next held in the year 2000. Regards Pete Senior Controller Biggin Hill Airport

  1. I grew up in Bickley and as a teenager would ride my motorcycle up to The Salt Box Cafe. About 1962. I would pass by a Hurricane next to a Spitfire parked outside the airfield entrance. Almost another lifetime it seems now. I moved to Monterey Bay area of California and have lived here since 1971. If there are any fighter pilots left I’d like to thank them very much for their contribution to my freedom.

    1. Thank you Stepen for your kind post. I used to pass by the Spitfire and Hurricame myself but someone a few years back thought they should be made to fly again. They have for some years now been replaced by two fibreglass replicas.
