Listed separately from RAF Breighton

Although this airstrip is immediately adjacent to the (now closed) RAF Breighton, it uses a separate runway from the original, which is still visible.

Confusing situation...

This is the western part of the former RAF base, including the North-South runway. It is operated by the Ouse Gliding Club. The Eastern part is operated separately by the "York Flying Club".

RAF Bisterne

Now long disused, this airfield formed part of the Airfields of the New Forest during WW2. It was a temporary airfield mainly for the protection of the ports along the South Coast and for interdiction strikes into German held Europe prior to the Nomandy Landings. Very little remains today

History

Cricklewood Aerodrome was built in 1912 to support the Handley Page factory in Cricklewood, London, England. Handley Page Transport operated service to Paris from here until merging into Imperial Airways in 1924. The airfield was closed in 1929. Currently the area is built up almost completely with residential homes. The original reception hall and some of the Handley Page aircraft factory still remain as commercial real estate.

Hilton to open a hotel on the Humberside Airport site

The first hotel at Humberside Airport was opened as recently as 2010. It is called Nightel and was designed specifically for people working on the North Sea gas field production rigs (which are serviced by fleets of helicopters from the airport). It has been so successful that the operators are building a new hotel for use by the general public. It will carry Hilton branding and is due to be opened in mid 2016.

BognorRegis My home town.

I always wondered why I was born in Bognor Regis, now it makes sense to me. My parents were Lived in London until just after the war (my mother born in London and my Father born near his ancestral home of Ely, but grew up in West Ham). My Father was a Fighter pilot during the Second world War and in 1945 his was with 83 G.S.U. training on Typhoon fighters to go to the far east for the fight against the Japanese. At this time 83 G.S.U. was stationed at Bognor then Westhampnet (Goodwood today). So this would explain where My parents got the notion to move to Bognor Regis. My father had spent time there and knew what it was like.

Great place undergoing some major changes to overcome the financial crisis.. Good luck to all conceded. As it could be the best airport in the UK. With some luck and investment.

Third runway at Heathrow

Now that I see a satellite picture of Heathrow I see just how easy it would be to add a third runway the other side of the Bath Road. Do th British want to keep a place in the Top Ten of European flight centers or not? Get on with it Brits!

airside trolleys

Modern airports provide airside trolleys, which fit inside toilet cubicles for security. Heathrow is too mean. This is an important facility for mothers carrying necessities for small children and for elderly passengers who find the trolleys convenient to lean on, while wheeling their cabin luggage and duty free purchases. I have heard LHR staff comment that they are fed up with collecting and stacking the trolleys. Apparently this is not a problem for staff at Amsterdam, Zurich and other modern, customer friendly airports.

Great airfield, friendly and helpful staff

It's great Bembridge is fully open again and I can vouch the staff are friendly and helpful. I go there frequently in my R44 heli; make a day of it and eat at the Propeller Inn, adjacent to the airfield, or walk to the Crab and Lobster Inn (about 30 mins along beach).

airfield info

Mainly microlights fly from here. Most of the old ww2 airfield is put over to Saturday and Sunday markets on the hardstanding of the old runways. One runway is used to park/store vehicles. The old control tower can still be seen tho dwarfed by a telephone mast.

airshows and museum

Sywell has a great airshow every two years (next one 2014) and a excellent free admission aviation museum, open from march to October.

Tristars and VC10s

The reason the RAF doesn't use VC10s for passenger is because they are old, knackered and there would be absolute bloody uproar if one came down whilst full of soldiers. Tristars are a similar story, they were twenty years old when the RAF got them in the early nineties, and as a result are similarly knackered, and spend a lot of time being fixed.

This is why the MoD has replaced these aircraft with the lovely new, fuel efficient A330 Voyager MRTT.

And the RAF charter in civilian carriers for the same reason other airlines charter aircraft, when demand for airtrooping exceeds the RAFs ability to supply it.

re: HEATHROW DE LONDRES UN AEROPUERTO PROFESIONAL

Reply to @ELICE: en mi experiencia, el única problema serio con Heathrow es la espera larga en las aduanas. En otros aspectos, me parece un buen aeropuerto, y es fácil llegar al centro de Londres desde allí.

The Passenger Experience

Humberside Airport has been independently rated as having the 9th best passenger service of all the World's airports. More services would be welcome. Scheduled services are provided by Eastern Airways, Flybe and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines. Charter flights are offered by Thomas Cook, Balkan Holidays and Low Cost Holidays. The long term car park is only 3 minutes from the terminal and it is possible to be driving away only ten minutes after landing. British Commonwealth and other overseas visitors can pass through the border controls in a very timely manner.
