Airfields and Aerodromes

G250There 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.

‘Our BBGA membership gives us access to an unparalleled repository of knowledge on aviation regulations and practices. If BBGA’s own in-house experts can’t answer a query they know someone who can; right across all of the disciplines of certified general aviation and business aviation too.
BBGA’s ability to bring together all sectors of UK general and business aviation gives us enviable networking access.
Nobody has the ear of the regulator like BBGA and that’s two-way thing; BBGA is not just able to elicit answers from EASA, the CAA and DfT, its advice and recommendations are sought both nationally and supra-nationally too. That makes membership a vital way to influence upcoming policy.’
