This link goes to an online (read-only) summary of training slot availability at London Oxford Airport in real-time. It is updated constantly by our Air Traffic Control team as requests come in and demand increases through the day. The page is automatically refreshed, so you are always seeing the most up to date information.
For schools, trainees, cadets and their instructors this gives an instant snapshot of how busy we are going to be on the day with 5 minute ‘slot’ intervals. Booking in direct with OXF ATC is required if you wish to undertake training at the airport.
