A big Hello from the wet & windy (but rather quiet!) North, we want to send a brief update from Hangar 3 at Blackpool Airport and relevant information for you to update the data / costs you may be holding for BLK/ EGNH & Hangar 3
As you may be aware the airport has undergone a few changes over recent months since the closure back in November 14, following the reopen earlier this year the airport had reduced its staffing levels in all departments but the schedule services begin again with the Blackpool to IOM route so things are looking up !
Airport Operational Hours
07:00z – 21:00z 7 days per week, and we can of course arrange out of hours movements with the airports agreement if needed, ideally as much notice as possible is needed BUT the small team at the airport will work collectively if possible to accommodate at whatever notice you can give, anything to help survival !! Fees and charges for out of hours charges from the airport can be found at (http://blackpoolairport.com/Fees-Charges-Payment)
The Airfield remains a licensed airfield for commercial operations with its ATZ live at all times during opening hours.
Radar is available Outside Controlled Airspace (OCAS) from Warton LARS on 129.525 during their published hours.
Airport Fire and Rescue Service
The airport currently promulgates AFRS Category 2 but with permission and subject to movements times then AFRS CAT 3 will be available by remission coordinated by your chums at Hangar 3 at no charge, in the event of several movements at the same time (we wish!!) or if you choose to have AFRS Cat 3 specifically for your movement then this will attract a supplementary charge by the airport of £250 + VAT (if applicable), again Hangar 3 will advise and coordinate that process for you.
Additionally then as well we can offer AFRS CAT 4 by arrangement and agreement, and again understandably the airport will charge £350 + VAT to cover the manpower costs.
ALL the charges apply to a rotation of 3 hours so it’s possible to come and go with simply once charge !!
Hangar 3 FBO Operational Hours
