Chiltern Park Aerodrome may be forced to close by end of September

It is understood that their landlord is considering alternative uses for the field. The Pearsons, who set up Chiltern Park Aerodrome in 1988, say they hope to find somewhere soon for their venture, which includes a skydiving and wing-walking school.

Over the years the establishment also raised money for almost two hundred charities, many of which are now facing financial difficulties due to the coronavirus lockdown.

The centre is currently the only one in the southern counties to offer all nine air sports recognised by Sport England.

The business, trading as Chiltern Airsports Centre, caters for a range of aircraft, including autogyros, gliders, helicopters and microlights, and supports about thirty jobs.

The aerodrome also serves as a night-time training ground for the Thames Valley Police helicopter unit and the Thames Valley Air Ambulance, in addition to being an emergency landing and training centre for the Puma and Chinook squadrons based at RAF Benson.

Its hangar is also a reserve base for Goring fire station.
