Whoever eventually runs the airport will still have to deal with the Housing estate problem......housing estates and airports don't mix well and generate a LOT of noise complaints

Whilst I'm not disputing an increase in noise complaints, to say there are at least a dozen other airports that prove they can coexist perfectly satisfactorily would be a conservative estimate.

Let's not forget, as far as we know this is just a possibility and just because the Mayor is suggesting a done deal that don't make it so. If it does go through, even with Peel retaining some, even say the bulk of the land, at least it will prove there was never a plan to shut the airport!

Surely if you don't like noise, you then don't buy a house near an airport.

Depends what you mean by 'a plan', but it's clear that Peel have considered it and retained it as an option (negotiating tool?) if losses continued and became unsustainable.

Surely if you don't like noise, you then don't buy a house near an airport.
You'll get nowhere applying logic....

Looking at the great DTV. Website today..so sad almost nothing happening.
Got me thinking..at what point does an airport become a complete basket case and completely unviable.

surely the losses must be escalating on a daily basis.
i know the rumours..and probably these will come to fruition,but will anything really change?

Staffing levels at an all time low,business at an all time low and even the ancillary input is quiet.

lots of local people want a vibrant go ahead airport..but I fear it’s going to be too little too late?

So sad and Prestwick in a similar position? Manston,Coventry,Blackpool all come to mind.

The general belief is the airport may be in some kind of shut-down/hiatus at management/marketing level until certain on-going matters reach a conclusion one way or another. If true that would affect Consort as a Peel subsidiary and therefore levels of visiting aircraft.

Gazette reporting the north-south link road has been re-applied for today, with no changes to the previously approved application

New twist in the saga, I wonder if the mayor will object. I see the Gazette is whipping up the usual idiot brigade in its comments.

PTT Aviation

I see PTT Aviation ceased trading yesterday and has entered voluntarily liquidation. NALjets on the other hand continues to operate.

There's more information in the Newcastle thread, including the letter handed to staff.

Cant see the problem with building these small units in Urlay Nook on the centre line for DTVA. The site is planned for the empty space next door to the Police gun training centre. Site is behind trees and bushes.
When Yarm fair is taking place travellers tend to park their caravans in the lay-by next to the site.

Not in my back yard seems to spring to mind. Could there be a reason for MME to object to these new units?

Yes they do when they are just down the road on the centre line

DTV Airport also gets a mention in this planning application a bit further out on the centre line.
More wind turbines. I wonder if Peel object to these turbines like they did during the Middlesbrough Football Club turbine debacle?

I think you know more than we do, Beafer. Are the PTT aircraft still in EGNV? Hangar doors were closed last time I was in the airport.

Peel might have the keys to open their hangar. There are more details on the Professional training thread on Pprune from pilots who were training with them.

Today press news re company.
