FlyPlymouth launching new Crowdfunding to reopen Plymouth Airport.
Last year, FlyPlymouth launched a Crowdfunding exercise which raised around £22,000 in a few weeks. This funding allowed FlyPlymouth to develop a business plan for the future of Plymouth Airport and present it to both the local Council and the Department for Transport. That plan has now been included in the draft Plymouth Plan 4, which would protect Plymouth Airport for aviation use until 2031.
Raoul Witherall explains in the video below that this is just the beginning in a long process to get Plymouth Airport open again to all aviation users. Further funding is needed and a second Crowdfunding venture will be opened on 19 September 2016, with a target to raise at least £25,000.
