Clubhouse

Situated at 8664 Hyne Rd. Brighton, MI 48114 on the northwest side of the airport, our clubhouse is actually the former land owner's home! Through diligent efforts our members have improved, maintained, and improvised to turn this old farmer's house into a functional clubhouse.

The facility is primarily used for various gatherings including our Saturday Breakfasts, EAA Chapter 384 meetings, Monday Night Pilot Proficiency meetings, and can be rented for your own special event.

Please contact questions@brightonairport.org if you'd like more information.



Fuel

Located on the northeast side of the runway, there is a fuel facility operated by Brighton Fuel Service. This private club offers both 100LL avgas and Swift UL94. A membership share, credit card authorization, and briefing are required in order to use the fuel farm. The fuel club is administered by Bob Komjathy who can be reached at bob@brightonairport.org or (810)599-0273.

Although fuel is not normally available to the public without a membership, under special circumstances we can arrange something to help you out.

Hangars

Brighton Airport has a rich and vibrant history including vintage and modern aircraft hangars. The BAA By-laws require the primary use of your hangar to be aviation related. Located on the northeast side of the runway, these hangars are generally designed in the shape of a T, 40ft wide, 30ft deep, and 12ft tall which accommodates most light general aviation airplanes.

The "new" hangar row on the south side of the hangar complex features more modern amenities and was constructed in the 21st century. They are generally sized at 42ft wide, 32ft deep, and 14ft high. In total, there are 86 original hangars and 22 in the new hangar row. More info on hangar location, sizes, and details is listed here.

Hangar space may be available for short term storage and you can check the classifieds for hangars for rent and for sale. For more info contact questions@brightonairport.org

Tiedowns

Tie Downs are available in the grassy parking area just south of the club house. There are three concrete pads with tie down rings to secure your airplane or you can just bring your own tie downs and park on the grass.

Aircraft Wash Station

On the northwest side of the airport, outside the Clubhouse fence you'll find an aircraft wash station. Plumbed with a frost-proof spigot and some washing equipment, your airplane awaits its bath.

Flight Training Device

Through shareholder and Saturday Breakfast donations, Ray Krom coordinated the purchase, install, and currently administers an Elite Simulations BATD used for pilot proficiency. This system is FAA approved to log time towards ratings, currency, and proficiency. This device is not a flight simulator game, it is a high tech flight training device usable by pilots training towards further ratings or currency.

A recent upgrade in 2019 now allows for practice with the newest avionics available in general aviation airplanes, including the Garmin GNS-430W/530W and GTN-650/750.

If you are not a member of the group, "sim time" may be available for a donation of $10/hr. For more information you can contact ray@brightonairport.org.

Ground Transportation

We currently do not offer an airport courtesy car, however Lyft ride sharing service is sometimes available.

Additionally, you may consider renting a car through Hertz (810)229-2538 or Enterprise (810)227-7368 which are both located on Grand River in Brighton.
