Apply for a New/Renew a Pass to fly (Airtask pass)

To fly on the FAAM aircraft you will have to apply for an Airtask pass. These rules are the same for everybody (Met Office, University etc.). The pass is valid for three years from issue. 

You may also require a Cranfield Airfield pass to access the apron/aircraft without escort (after a safety briefing from Airtask). See below for details. Both applications should be sent together to Airtask. Full details under Aircraft Access Procedure (requires you to be logged in to this (old) website).

 

Full details for both passes are on the new FAAM website.
