Biggin projects on show

Current developments at Biggin Hill Airport were in the spotlight last week for an official visit by mayors from across the capital and the South East at the invitation of their Bromley counterpart, Kathy Bance MBE.

The visitors were given a presentation by community engagement manager Colin Hitchins on the airport’s job creation, investment and infrastructure plans before taking a tour.

On show was Biggin’s newly-expanded Bombardier Corporate Jet facility, while the mayors also inspected the site for the London Aerospace and Technology College announced last month (BTN 26 February), a project supported by the borough of Bromley.

Airport marketing manager Andy Patsalides said: “Following the success of last year’s event, we were privileged once again to welcome our top local mayors to the airport, on behalf of councillor Bance.

“London Biggin Hill’s plans for development have evolved significantly over the past 12 months, with investment directed towards the future of business aviation and technical education here.

“Our distinguished guests were able to have a sneak preview of all we have planned, and the numerous opportunities that are brought to the area as we continue to be a gateway for business to London and the South East.”

One has to commend Biggin Hill for their commitment to the development of their airport in order to provide a vital training facility for aviation that is so urgently needed for the industry.
