The Rural Flying Corps have been providing flying training at Bourn Airfield, Cambridgeshire for over a quarter of a century.

Whether it’s a first trial lesson, training to achieve your Private Pilot’s Licence (PPL) or further advanced training and solo hire, the Rural Flying Corps has something for you.

We are a small friendly club operating from part of a second world war airfield, steeped in history and benefiting from open airspace and two tarmac runways.

Many of the several hundred who have obtained their Private Pilot’s Licence at Bourn have progressed to a career in commercial aviation and are now flying jet aircraft with the major airlines. Others simply fly for pleasure or continue to learn and obtain extra ratings.

It is with deep regret that we announce the death of our CFI Arthur Lindsay Brown.

Lindsay, born 11th June 1936, passed peacefully on 4th February 2020, aged 83 years. Much loved Husband to Barbara; Father and Grandfather. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him, particularly all the pilots and flight instructors that he taught over his long career with the Rural Flying Corps.

Barbara, Paula and Nicola would like to say a big thank you to all the many friends and family for their kind cards, letters and condolences.  What a wonderful turnout to celebrate Lindsay’s life. As one friend said he was a flying legend and he was. The flypast in the little Cub, I know he would have enjoyed that. Once again many, many thanks for everything that made the day so special.

Barbara, Paula & Neil, Nic & Geoff, James, Ryan and Catherine.
