TG Aviation set for mediation with Manston airport site owners

Comments (0)

FLIGHT school TG Aviation will take part in mediation with the owners of the former Manston airport site today in a bid to regain use of the runway.

The meeting in London today (Monday) will serve as an attempt to settle the dispute without the need for civil proceedings.

TG Aviation failed in July last year to secure a High Court injunction, which would have meant it could continue using the runway at Manston as an unlicensed airfield.

The flight school had roughly 50 years left to run on its lease at the airport, but has been forced to relocate to Lydd airport near Ashford.

TG Aviation is currently run by Mark Girdler and his wife, Sue. Mr Girdler’s father, Ted, a former Red Arrow, founded the flight school in 1982.

The company has been based at Manston airport, which closed in May, since its inception more than 30 years ago.
