New Directflight pass application form

A new version of the Directflight pass application form (Directflight Pass Clearance Application 2014 v4) has been uploaded to the website. Please use it for any future (re/)applications.
From May 2014, for fliers expecting to fly from Cranfield more than occasionally, a flying pass application will also be used to allow a Cranfield Airfield pass to be generated. This will be required to access the apron/aircraft without escort (after a safety briefing). Full details under Aircraft Access Procedures (requires you to be logged in to the website).
