Fairoaks Airport

Fairoaks Airport (ICAO: EGTF) is an operational general aviation airport by the A319 between Chobham and Ottershaw in Surrey, England. It is 2 NM (3.7 km; 2.3 mi) north of the major town of Woking and for passengers is 2.8 miles (4.5 km) from Junction 11 of the M25 motorway which is between the M3 and A3 junctions.

The airport is operated by Fairoaks Operations Ltd, owned by Albemarle Fairoaks Airport Ltd. and Airport Development Partners.

Fairoaks Aerodrome has a CAA Ordinary Licence (number P560) that allows flights for the public transport of passengers or for flying instruction as authorised by the licensee (Fairoaks Operations Ltd).

The facility is used as by light aircraft, some of which are operated by its two resident training schools - Synergy Aviation and London Transport Flying Club, and as a maintenance airfield. Its business centre is substantially dedicated to aviation-related enterprises, including the headquarters of the European Regions Airline Association and the British Helicopter Advisory Board.

Fairoaks is equipped with a non-directional beacon (NDB) for short-range radio navigation. There is a small on-site fire and rescue service, comprising two 4WD rescue vehicles.

From 1994 until 2009 one of three South East Regional Air Support Unit (Metropolitan and Surrey Police Forces) helicopters (and for a period of this time one for the latter force alone) were at Fairoaks. In June 2009, the remaining police helicopter was transferred to RAF Odiham in Hampshire on security grounds.

There are no restrictions on the number of helicopter movements, although there is a ban on training with the Robinson R22. Fixed wing movements are limited to 120,000 per annum.
