The advice available includes among other things planning and conservation policy, accountancy, business model development, marketing strategy and innovation.

Airfields applying for advice through the fund can be licensed or unlicensed and must handle fewer than 200,000 terminal passengers on average per year.

Aviation Minister Robert Courts said: “Airfields are at the heart of the innovative £3 billion General Aviation sector and it’s vital that we protect and support their future development.

“Announced back in February, the Airfield Development Advisory Fund will help airfields grow, create more local jobs, and inspire the next generation of enthusiasts and professionals.”
