Biggin Hill is reporting that BGAD had over 700 visitors, 60 exhibitors and 20 aircraft and helicopters in the static display.

The show highlighted the UK debut of the Cessna Citation Latitude; the launch of TBM dealer Flying Smart’s new sales base at Biggin Hill; Globeair’s promotion of its new collaboration with BACA and Zenith Aviation’s new charter fleet.

Charter brokers and aircraft operators joined in a selection seminars hosted by BACA and the BBGA. BACA also organised a ‘speed dating’ session with 11 operators hosting tables to meet charter brokers circulating for three minute information briefings.

Andy Patsalides, marketing manager of London Biggin Hill Airport said: “We were delighted to welcome so many friends and business colleagues to BGAD for the first time here at Biggin Hill. The event was not only a real showcase for the airport, but we were especially delighted that by moving the show to London for the first time, it resulted in a significant increase in both visitor and exhibitor numbers.”

“We were proud to be able to to round the day off with a tribute to ‘The Few’, who flew from Biggin Hill during the Battle of Britain, with a special flying display from a based Hurricane, providing a fitting finale to a valuable and achieving business aviation focus” he said.

BGAD was hosted at Biggin Hill on the nationally recognised Battle of Britain Day in the year of the 75thanniversary of the historic air campaign of 1940.
