Airfields and Aerodromes
There are around 200 licensed airfields in the UK used by General Aviation, providing swift access to more than 2,000 in Continental Europe. Some General Aviation aircraft have an intercontinental capability and fly regularly to North America, Africa and Russia. General Aviation public transport operators carry in excess of a quarter million passengers every year to and from places never served by the major airlines. Fixed Base Operators provide specialist facilities for Business Aviation at major and minor airports.
