TAG Farnborough Airport enhances maintenance and servicing offering
14th August 2013 by Farnborough Airport
TAG Farnborough Airport’s local planning authority, Rushmoor Borough Council, granted permission to enhance the maintenance and servicing of aircraft offered at the airport, on 18 July 2013. Selected maintenance and servicing work, which was previously restricted to the airport’s operational hours, is now permitted 24 hours per day, seven days per week.
Out of hours work is authorised to take place in the airport’s existing maintenance facilities and on its apron, providing it does not transmit noise to surrounding property. Therefore, no work outside of the airport’s maintenance buildings is permitted to involve the running of aircraft engines or the use of air tools and is limited to internal diagnostics and servicing.
This consent enables the airport-based engineering companies to offer overnight servicing to aircraft which arrive in the evening and plan to depart the following morning
