Farnborough Airport

Farnborough Airport Farnborough holds a unique place in British aviation. Its history is closely linked to the development of the aircraft industry as the site of a government-owned aircraft factory in the first world war, then as a research establishment and today as the location of the biennial international air show. The Ministry of Defence declared Farnborough surplus to requirements in 1992. It has now received planning permission to develop into a business and executive aviation centre. But despite the changes the Society of British Aerospace Companies, which promotes the air show, has announced its intention of keeping it at Farnborough indefinitely. The show represents a major challenge to NATS controllers who are responsible for co-ordinating all the movements into and out of the airfield as well as the flying display itself.

In the United Kingdom, TAG Aviation (U.K.) Ltd. is engaged in the management, charter, and charter brokerage of business jet aircraft and holds a Type A (large aircraft) and Type B, Air Operator Certificate issued by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

TAG Farnborough Airport Ltd. operates Farnborough Airport (which it leases from the U.K. Ministry of Defense), located in Hampshire, U.K., thirty-five miles southeast of London. Farnborough Airport is a CAA certified, full IFR, commercially qualified airport for the exclusive use of business jet aircraft. Farnborough also serves as the home of the Farnborough Airshow, one of the largest aerospace trade shows in the world. TAG Farnborough Airport Ltd. is engaged in the full range of airfield operating activities, including airfield operations and maintenance, crash and rescue, safety, aircraft and passenger security, and air traffic control. In addition, the company provides handling and fueling services, and offers parking and hangar and office accommodations for business jets and support activities.
