The Bristol Aero Club was formed in 1994 as a “not for profit” flying club to promote an interest in flying as a social activity, building on the close association and historic interest in aviation at the aerospace companies on site. At the end of 2012 when Filton Airport closed, the Club relocated to Cotswold Airport, Kemble and in February 2017, the club relocated to Gloucestershire Airport where it is now based.
Here we have our own dedicated club hut with classrooms, kitchen (so plenty of teas and coffees) and toilets. The main car park is nearby and aircraft are hangared close by.
The Club is run by members – including many from the aerospace industry at Filton – and membership contains a wealth of aviation knowledge and experience, including managers, airline pilots, aircraft designers and engineers as well as doctors, carpenters, drivers etc.
