NOTAMs (Notices to Aviation)

NOTAMs are used throughout aviation and give personnel up-to-date information on the serviceability and status of any aerodrome, along with changes to procedures and hazards relevant to their intended routing and flight operation. It will cover notifications of temporary information (usually of less than 90 days duration), or permanent information not yet included in the AIP. These change daily and can often be updated at short notice. It is important to check the up-to-date NOTAMs for your flight before operating. For the latest NOTAMs click on the link below.

Rescue and Fire Fighting Services (RFFS)

The Airport RFFS plays a vital role on the aerodrome. They not only provide critical emergency support when required on and around the aerodrome, they also perform a number of other tasks during their day which keep the airfield running smoothly. Rescue and Firefighting on the aerodrome is categorised by the size of aircraft they can deal with. At Brighton City Airport we can offer a maximum of Category 3. This allows us to be able to respond to the largest aircraft that can land here with us. 

We are usually RFF Category A2 and we can operate RFF category 3 under remission.
