Situated on the Fylde Coast, owned by Blackpool Council, Blackpool was one of the first aviation sites in the UK, with a history dating back to 1909. With all the attractions of Blackpool including the Blackpool Tower, Illuminations, Promenade, Zoo and Pleasure Beach on it's doorstep, and just a short flight away from the beautiful scenery of the Lake District, its a fantastic place to visit.
This is a new and exciting era for the airport, with all the following operations:
- Babcock Offshore Mission Critical Services Offshore Limited (Eurocopter AS365 Dauphins) from here to the oil and gas platforms in the Liverpool and Morecambe Bays.
- The North West Air Ambulance
- A variety of fixed wing and helicopter flying schools
- Handling agents, Executive private jets and bespoke aviation solutions from Hangar 3.
- Handling agents, J Max Air services
- Various fixed wing and rotary maintenance organisations
Aircraft Storage & Recycling Solutions; Blackpool Airport is a regulated Airport, with enough hard standing for parking a range of aircraft including wide bodied, narrow bodied as well as regional sized aircraft. Competitive parking fees are available for all aircraft at rates considerably lower than airports with scheduled operations, saving substantial costs over extended parking periods to the lessors/owners. Whether a Lease Company, or Aircraft Operator, Blackpool Airport is readily able to service your short, mid or long-term parking requirements now.
There is also opportunity to rent the necessary engineering facilities to allow the MRO’s commissioned to support any aircraft being parked and stored recognising they will need to undertake weekly, bi-weekly and monthly functional checks as well as engine runs, APU running, and possible preservation of engines as necessary if they are placed into storage condition. The airport also has sufficient infrastructure to support office space, parts, consumables storage and heavy equipment holding along with restricted area(s) for parts quarantine should this be necessary. Blackpool Airport through its contacts can also source Part 145 engineering support should you require this assistance.
For General Aviation we can offer circuits, instrument training, night flying, aircraft parking, refuelling and have a new lounge and flight briefing facility.
We hope to see you soon!
