Welcome to Brown Shutters Farm Airfield…
We are a friendly, welcoming club operating from a scenic grass airfield 5nm SSE of Bath.
Visitors with farm strip experience and suitable aircraft are very welcome, subject to strict PPR.
There are 2 runways so crosswinds are rarely a problem.
Please read the pilot briefing notes before filling in the online PPR request form.
History of the airfield…
Brown Shutters Farm Airfield was created in 1988, when ex-Fleet Arm pilot Eric Newbigin, who lives locally,
began operating his Tiger Moth from here. Over the years the field has been home to various aircraft, which
apart from Eric’s Tiger have been mainly microlights.
In 2007 local pilot Andy Greenwell arrived at Brown Shutters, and he has been the driving force behind the
regeneration of the airfield. He and others built a second runway, and early in 2016 Brown Shutters was
given a Certificate of Lawfulness in recognition of it having been in continuous operation for over 10 years.
Planning permission has been approved for a change of use of farm buildings to provide secure storage for the
aircraft based here. At present we have a range of aircraft including fixed and flex-wing microlights and GA
aircraft. New members are very welcome subject to experience and aircraft suitability.
