Publication date: April 29th
Given the current restrictions on General Aviation flying in the UK, and the likely continuation of restrictions into 2021, we have decided to return to the traditional publication date of March. Thus, the 2021 UK VFR Flight Guide will be published on the 31st March 2021. Until then, we are continuing to update the UK VFR Flight Guide to be sure that when it is published it will be the most up-to-date flight guide for the 2021 flying season.
The 2021 edition of the UK VFR Flight Guide will contain around 530 airfields fully described – 400 more than some other UK flight guides. There are also additional listings for another 450 flying sites. The 2021 UK VFR Flight Guide features professionally drawn airfield maps up to 40% bigger than those of competing flight guides; the highest standards of accuracy and clarity and a logical, standardised, layout of information to present at a glance all the information a pilot needs both for pre-flight planning and in the cockpit. The UK VFR Flight Guide is the most comprehensive and trusted source of airfield data for the General Aviation airfields and flying sites of the UK.
