Tier 5 Update

Dear All,

As you will no doubt be aware, on the evening of the 4th of January the UK government announced that England was to enter a strict national lockdown in line with Tier 5 restrictions. Due to this announcement and the transmissibility of the new COVID strain, Booker Aviation has taken the decision to cease all flight instruction and aircraft rental at the airfield with immediate effect. We predict this will last for the remainder of January.

This decision will be reviewed regularly as more advice from the government, Department for Transport and the CAA is released. Please rest assured that we hope to reopen as soon as circumstances allow.

Regarding Airfield operations, due to the restrictions currently placed on recreational flying, the airfield will be closed as of the 6th of January until the end of the month. This will mean that no aircraft will be able to depart from or arrive at the airfield except for with prior permission or as a result of an emergency. If you have been issued with an out of hours permit, you must request a slot at least 24 hours before every flight. Again, if the guidance changes than this decision will be reviewed and our dedicated team will be able to react swiftly to resume normal operations as soon as possible.

In order to support aircraft owners/syndicate members with aircraft hangered or parked at the airfield, we will reopen on the 21st, 22nd and the 23rd of January for based aircraft only for you to carry out engine health flights. If on any of these dates you are unable to fly due to weather, we will provide alternate dates. Please email operations with your preferred day and time for any such flight.

Please direct all correspondence regarding flight training, airfield procedures or out of hour bookings to Operations@bookeraviation.aero.

As always, please keep safe in these very uncertain times and we look forward to seeing you all again on the other side.

Kind regards,

Alex Anderson-Brown
