Press Release

21 September 2016Cllr Woodward and David Learmount

Aviation expert gives seal of approval to Solent Airport at Daedalus

Internationally acclaimed aviation expert David Learmount has given his seal of approval to Solent Airport at Daedalus following a visit on 20th September.

Mr Learmount, a regular broadcaster on aviation and air travel for international television and radio stations throughout the world, was welcomed to Solent Airport by Executive Leader Cllr Seán Woodward, Cllr Jon Butts and the airport's operator RCAM.

The purpose of the visit was to outline Fareham Borough Council's vision for the site, to assure him of the Council's ongoing commitment to aviation, and to show how far the site has come since ownership passed to the Council in March 2015.

Cllr Woodward said: "It was a privilege to meet David in person and share with him the successes we have achieved here to date."

David Learmount said: "Having been instinctively sceptical about Fareham Borough Council's plans for Daedalus, I admit now to being impressed at their considerable investment in the aerodrome infrastructure, the ambitious plans for attracting high-tech aerospace and marine industries to the airfield development sites, and for supporting them once there. Behind all this is an infectious enthusiasm among people at all levels born of a respect for Daedalus' long aviation history and a determination to capitalise on it."

 

ENDS
