Flying to the Silverstone F1 Grand Prix

July each year



You CANNOT do private flights directly to Silverstone for the Grand Prix, only to non-Grand Prix events, and even then it proves top be difficult (as we recently found out).  Because of that and because of a poor decision made several years ago about the positioning of the campsite, it means twins-only.  The cheapest deal we were made aware of was £1000 from Fresh Air near Bicester (only a few minutes away).  To land nearby rather than at the circuit, Helipaddy may be able to help - email us.


Many charter operators are offering flights in to Silverstone Helipad and it is a bit of a bun fight.  Details and link to forms are in Helipaddy.


Silverstone heliport is now operated by Sloane and Fresh Air as of Feb 18th 2016.  ATC is provided during major racing events.  Helicopters to take-off along the axis of the clearway and when on 06 turn before the grandstand.
Silverstone is a temporary restricted area during the Grand Prix.   There are several operators who will do charters, for example, below.
