Airports, Airfields and Heliports FAQ
An airfield is convenient for small aircraft and can include both grass and paved runway and taxiways for take-off and landings. An airport generally has more services that are required for passengers and larger aircraft. Their surfaces for aircraft operations are typically paved.
An airport usually has a full suite of services to support the commercial aircraft industries, including terminals with dedicated passenger handling and ticketing, ground support, refuelling, ramp and freight services among others.
Airfield facilities generally include those that support the transition of aircraft from flying to the ground or the movement of aircraft from parking or storage areas to departure and flight.
Book as far in advance as possible. Yes, the ability to have last-minute travel plans is one of the benefits of owning an aircraft, however, some airfields and airports in high-density areas operate on a slot basis and you will need to ensure you have secured a slot. The same goes if you are planning to fly to an area which is hosting a special event such as the Super Bowl or a Formula 1 race or are travelling during busy holiday seasons such as Sint Maarten in the winter or Ibiza during the summer.
European airline hubs such as London Heathrow (LHR) or Paris (CDG) will always prioritise major airlines which is why it makes sense for small planes and private jets to use smaller, executive airports instead (such as Farnborough or Biggin Hill for London and Le Bourget for Paris), which will usually allow you to land or take off without a pre-booked slot.
An airfield is an area or piece of land set aside for the take-off and landing of airplanes. The size and structure of the runway surface will determine the size and type of aircraft they can handle.
Usually airfields welcome visitors in all shapes and sizes. You may not have an aircraft, however you are welcome to use the services of the companies that are based at the airfield, the onsite airfield cafe, or simply watch the movements of the aircraft on the ground as a visitor.
A heliport is an area of ground that is designated for the take-off and landing of helicopters. Similarly to an airport, there will be services to support the storage, maintenance and refuelling of serval helicopters either permanently or temporarily.
A helipad is an area of the ground or a structure that is dedicated to the take-off and landing of one helicopter at a time.
