Gloucestershire Airport

Gloucestershire Airport

Following the recent introduction of a fully revised Scale of Charges, Gloucestershire Airport has seen a dramatic upsurge in traffic. May was the Airport’s busiest month for over 15 years, with over 10 200 movements, and June is already on target to beat it.

Feedback from customers has been positive, and some further suggestions have warranted more changes to the charging scheme: -

Parking

Visiting aircraft receive 4 hours free parking, but a new ‘same day departure’ rate of ?5 +VAT has been introduced for aircraft up to 3mt, enabling visitors to venture further afield and sample what the surrounding area has to offer.

Helicopter Jet A1 Refuelling

Gloucestershire Airport Helicopters up to 3mt buying 200 litres or more of Jet A1, now pay only £15 +VAT. Refuelling is available for shut down or rotors turning refuel, without prior notification 7 days per week.

With six hard runways, a new grass runway in the process of being prepared, full ATC with NDB, DME, Radar, runway lighting and fire cover seven days per week, Gloucestershire Airport is undoubtedly one of the best equipped GA Airports in the country. Gloucestershire Airport is also home to the new Transair Pilot Shop, The Aviator restaurant and no less than 6 Flying Training Organisations, providing every conceivable level of pilot training from NPPL to Instrument Rating. Allied with full, on-site maintenance facilities, avionics, fuel, hangarage and its prime location in the heart of the Cotswolds, a short taxi ride from Cheltenham or Gloucester, it truly has an enormous amount to offer.

Perhaps the ideal time to visit will be during this year’s PFA Rally at Kemble, when landing fees will be waived for all visiting aircraft refuelling at Gloucestershire Airport, en route to or from the Rally. The sheer volume of traffic attending the Rally inevitably leads to some delays for fuel, but the short hop across the Cotswolds could help to relieve the pressure and allow pilots to sample what Gloucestershire Airport has to offer.

History of the Gloucestershire Aviation Museum

The Gloucestershire Aviation Collection GAC which is a registered charity was formed over ten years ago with the main objective of establishing a museum in Gloucestershire to celebrate the County's outstanding aerospace heritage.

The Jetage Museum already has a significant collection of aircraft and other artefacts stored at several locations, the bulk of which is in temporary storage at Staverton Airport whilst the Museum relocates to new premises.

The new Jet Age museum will mark the history of the site in a significant way with a special feature being the development of jet flight and the work of Sir Frank Whittle.

In addition the Collection will embrace all aerospace in Gloucestershire past and present. It will not just be a collection of Gloster aircraft but will include all aviation heritage from the historic county of Gloucestershire. Messier Dowty and Smiths Industries are just two of the local companies which continue to demonstrate the still active aerospace industry of the County.
