Our research suggests that:

  • The largest aviation business based at Fairoaks, Gama Maintenance, is at full capacity, limited by available hangars
  • This suggests that not only are the operations at Fairoaks already at a significant size but that they are enjoying a period of excellent growth, despite a complete lack of investment from the airport’s current owners
  • Fairoaks2020

 

The real reason for the perceived lack of viability stems from the current ownership of Fairoaks Airport.
