Safety & Security

Airside Access:  This is only available to authorised personnel, approved by the Airport Operator, having first passed through 4 access points:
  • Site: A key-fob operated Security Gate at the entrance that closes automatically
  • Front and Side Doors: Allows access to the unit via a Security Key
  • Hangar: Doors from the hallway and garage/workshop/store are via coded locks
  • Airfield: The hangar door and side door of hangar can only be opened with a Key
Airside Safety and Security:  The Chairman of the Home Owners Association (HOA) would agree all safety and security procedures with the Airport Manager, and then make sure that each unit abides by them.  These procedures have been put forward as standard:
  • Airside access from each unit would only be via the hangar by authorised personnel
  • Authorised personnel are responsible for their passengers and guests
  • Security fencing is between each unit with airside access to hangar via a side-door
  • No fuel would be kept in the hangar except in the fuel tanks of the aircraft
  • No inbound or outbound flights to be undertaken outside of operating hours
Approval:  These fully and part-residential hangars have been approved on UK airfields by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), the Airfield Advisory Team (AAT), the General Aviation Awareness Council (GAAC) and the Aircraft Owner and Pilots Association (AOPA).  Also, there are nearly 700 Residential Airparks worldwide, most of which are in the US.  Of these, 55 of them are on licensed public airports, which is overwhelming evidence that having residential use on them does not compromise its operation or safety and security.
