Where will the new Airbase & HQ be built? And why build it here? Expand There are lots of factors to consider when investing substantial sums into a build with the combined purpose of serving as an airbase and as a head quarters for our non-operational staff, as well as being a community hub that is accessible to all of our supporters and stakeholders. There has been a great deal of research into potential locations from which our operations teams can best respond. We must consider not only the geographical factors, but also meteorological ones as these have a massive impact on the ease with which we operate. We must also consider the potential impact of a build on prospective residents and communities in the immediate vicinity. The bulk of the planning so far has been in finding the right location for the project and we are now nearing the end of that process and will soon be able to update you with the results of those investigations. When it is, we will be able to share the exciting news with you! In the meantime, read more about the challenges we are hoping to meet.
