The higher level spells are not necessary missing, but they are not something beginning players would have access to.
BFRPG is more BECMI D&D than AD&D but they did AC right and separated Race and Class, so no "my class is Dwarf" like Basic did. If your players NEED spells of 8th and 9th level I would just look to BECMI D&D and AD&D and houserule some stuff in....but you will have time. I would say playing steadily, once a week, one focused campaign, for a year will probably get you close to 6th level spells. YMMV but the old school gaming was built to be a slow burn where 5e D&D is a race to 20th level in comparison.
