Coventry Airport comes back to life

AIR ATLANTIQUE CLASSIC FLIGHT celebrated the arrival of a former RAF Nimrod to its collection of, mostly flying, aircraft at Coventry Airport last week, by announcing the introduction of AIRBASE, a living heritage of British Aviation.  The event also marked the rebirth of the airport under its new owners Patriot Aviation Group.  Air Atlantique Chairman Mike Collett was keen to emphasise that AIRBASE is not a museum.  “What we have at Coventry is a living, working environment in which visitors both can gain a sense of flying in a bygone era, and at the same time look to the future.  We want to encourage young people to take up aviation.  It is an exciting and rewarding career.”  The new centre opens on 29 May and will also offer daily flights in one of the Air Atlantique de Havilland Dragon Rapides, a biplane and the backbone of UK domestic aviation in the 1930s. www.classicflight.com
