We are a registered service charity (charity no.1178894), formed in 1979 and based at RAF Brize Norton.  Brize Flying Club is a member of Royal Air Force Sport Aircraft (RAFSA), the governing body for recreational flying clubs within the service.


Our aim is to enable service personnel, regardless of rank or trade, to be able to fly at the lowest possible cost.
