About Birmingham International Airport

On the outbreak of World War II, the airport was operated by the RAF and known as Raf Elmdon. The airport is located 7 nautical miles south of the city of Birmingham.

In 2018, Birmingham was the 7th busiest airport in the UK. The 3rd busiest outside of London and 2nd in England. It transported around 12.5million passengers with around 112,000 aircraft movements. Both down from the previous year. Source - Wikipedia

Departure Information and Guidelines

Departure information will be updated and found here on the morning of the event and will be updated 1hr prior to the event in a pm.

  • Please spawn at your assigned gate 10 minutes before departure
  • Please only Pushback when the aircraft next you has began its taxi and is clear of you. Pushback in any order as long as you are clear of other aircraft
  • If IFATC is active, follow all instructions, this could be enforced by ghosting. If IFATC is not active, you must announce all movements on UNICOM. I am not responsible for any violations received during this
  • Flight plan should be made by the pilot, I personally recommend FplToIF
  • Remain aware of surroundings at all times as the airport will be busy, do not cut in line, no intersection departures. Keep a safe distance with aircraft ahead whilst taxiing at all times!!
  • Pilots may use SIDs, charts for the runway in use will be posted in the pm prior to the event.
  • Take off after the aircraft in front reaches 2500 AGL

Look forward to seeing you all! Happy Flying! :)
