25th October 2012

The Airport Operators Association (AOA), which represents all the major UK Airports and the General Aviation Airports in the UK, has awarded Sywell Aerodrome for the third time in four years as the Best General Aviation Airport for 2012/13. The award was presented at the AOA annual awards Ceremony at the Hilton Metropole London. Sywell Aerodrome was presented with this award in 2009 and 2011.

The Award was determined by the Airport Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) for excellence in particular areas.

Ed Anderson, AOA Chairman, commented "The number and quality of entries was unprecedented, reflecting the quality of the people and companies working within the airport industry. Deciding on the winners was a difficult process, with so many outstanding entries, but the award winners showed particular excellence and dedication in their field."

Mr Michael Bletsoe-Brown, Managing Director of Sywell Aerodrome Ltd., commented "Everyone at Sywell Aerodrome is very proud to receive this award for the third time. It reflects the great effort and dedication of Sywell's staff, which had a large part to play in winning this award." He went onto comment "Sywell's aim has always been to be the best GA Airport in the UK, now we will strive to be the best in Europe."
