Order your copy of the Pilot Pals Calendar


You’re only a stranger once !!

 Our friendly club, situated on Biggin Hill Airport, welcomes all pilots and ex-service personnel – Air, Groundcrew, Army, Navy, and Airforces – We are open from 1200 hrs until 2300 hrs, 7 days a week, serving alcohol, teas, coffees, plus hot and cold food. The view from the bar overlooking the historic airport is well worth the visit. (As a Private Club, all visitors must sign our guest book).

  1. Rex here.
    I am still alive and kicking and living in Shetland.
    My health is quite good but, I never expected to get to my young 85 years old.
    Is Joe still in Spain?
    Who is left from the old crowd?
    We were quite a wild bunch in those days.
    Graham I remember Samantha, I took some of the Pilots Pals, pictures for Joe, amongst them was Samantha. It was winter, snow on the ground and she had just a well placed leather jacket on. I told her to hurry up posing because I was getting cold.
    She swore at me, but nicely.
    I would like to hear from anyone, including, Captain Dempster.
    By for now.

    1. Hi Barry a bit random but I just purchased an ejector seat from a Canberra it has a plaque on it saying it was presented to the club fo you know of it cheers Fraser

  2. I would like to thank you for your most interesting reply to my application to join the Air Force. The 12 staff members who put the card together are far more clever than I thought at first and it has taken me 4 years, this weekend, in fact, to read what you actually wrote to me. I have translated the card and given it to the DWP as part of my business plan to help mothers with children who have little money. If you could reply I can send you the details and contact details for the DWP if you have any other information I can add to the book.
    Can I thank you for all you have done.

    All Sins Forgiven…


  3. Looking for a ‘pilot’s pal’ from the late 1980’s called Samantha. Can’t remember the surname. She also worked behind the bar in the Tamworth arms in croydon.

  4. The/Club bar referred to by James was I suspect Pilots Pals club which closed down a couple of years ago with Joe Merchant the proprietor retiring to Spain It is a great shame Missed so much by all our members and no replacement. We do though meet up at air shows and things There is a website Bigginhill reunited

  5. Sure to visit when time permits in clear blue skies to Dear “Biggin on the Bump” again, remiss in being away so long 🙁
