Biggin Hill Airport Consultation - Proposed new IAP Runway 03.

At present, all flights approach the airport from the north-east using the airport’s precision guidance system but, in certain weather conditions (approximately 30% of the time), aircraft then have to circle the airport in order to land from the south-west.

The planned installation will avoid that circuit and permit aircraft arriving from the south-west to make a more direct approach, reducing the number of homes overflown and improving environmental performance by reducing the number of track miles flown.

Biggin Hill Airport are conducting a wide-ranging consultation with our neighbours, MPs, local government, local and special interest groups, airport and airspace users. The consultation – which will run until mid-February 2016 – is being conducted in accordance with the procedures laid down by the UK Civil Aviation Authority and the Cabinet Office.
