We were saddened to read the following press release;

 

Panshanger TNDear all,

It is with great sadness that we have had to send this press release out to you. Please read and communicate it well in your publications and on your websites to let people know.

The closure is sadly due to the licence agreement with the landowner, Mariposa Investments Ltd, expiring on 21st September 2014. Therefore, the aerodrome will be officially closing on Saturday 20th September with limited flight operations in the final week from 14th September. We are very grateful to have had so many years here at Panshanger and I'm sure you will agree that there is no place like Panshanger.

We would like to invite you to come to the last events – Panshanger Revival Day on Sunday 10th August and the Aerobatic Day on 14th September as these will be a celebration of General Aviation in the UK. We will also be holding our Young Aviators Day on Friday 1st August to give those young pilots some inspiration for the future. It will be great to write articles about these events so other airfields can recreate something similar in the future to keep the Panshanger spirit going. Please let us know so we can add your name to the guest list.

If you require any original imagery, please let me know as we have high resolution copies.

Thank you for all your support over the years.

Kind regards

Haim and Sue
