Airfield- updated 24/8/17


Following Fareham Borough Council’s purchase of the airfield in 2015, its plans and developments are progressing apace and it has published a strategy for the overall development of the airfield site which can be seen here

The credibility of this document with regard to the scale and future of aviation space and retained runways/taxiways/parking/hangars will be fundamental to the confidence and viability of potential aviation users and investors. AAn operating contract has been let to Regional and City Airports Limited to run the airfield until 1st April 2021 based on a new specification managing “Solent Airport Daedalus” as business and light aircraft Airport with improved facilities, runway lighting and navigation guidance but not 24hours nor for commercial flights within this contract period.  The contract includes a role to work with the landowner, Fareham Borough Council and will include improvements such as better passenger facilities, and perhaps a visitor and heritage centre that should be open to the public together with a cafe in the control tower building.
