Information About Brown Shutters Farm Airfield

Brown Shutters Farm Airfield is located near the quiet Somerset village of Norton St Philip, and is just 15 minutes outside the centre of the historic spa city and UNESCO World Heritage site of Bath via the A36.

It is unusual for the airfields we have Flying Experiences in the South West of England available to book from here on FlyDays. And we say that, in so far as almost all of them have some sort of military or wartime connections that goes back nearly a century ago.

This airfield however, is one of the few exceptions, as it is relatively new as to when it was founded, back in 1988. As you might well expect from its name, it's on farm land, and was established when a former Fleet Arm pilot and local man, Eric Newbigin, started operating his Tiger Moth from there.

And whilst it's been home to many different aircrafts over the last four decades (including the Tiger Moth), these days, it is perhaps best known for hosting Microlighting Lessons. For those who are new to flying, it's one of the lightest and most enjoyable ways of getting airborne.

We have 20 Minute, 30 Minute and 60 Minute Sessions available to book at Brown Shutters Farm Airfield, which are run and approved by the British Microlight Aircraft Association (BMAA). You'll receive a full briefing before your chosen session by a qualified microlighting instructor.

And once you're strapped in and up in the air in either a flexwing or fixed-wing microlight, you'll find it's incredibly easy to pilot and navigate, as you build in confidence and start to attempt some light mid-air turns! For those looking for a gentle way into learning to fly, Microlighting is the best fit.
