Helicopters Relocate

EXETER AIRPORT, UK, is working to become the new site for the Devon and Cornwall Police Air Support Unit and Devon Air Ambulance facility, currently located at Police Headquarters Middlemoor.
The relocation is due to take place in early 2012 and will support the needs of both the Police Force and the Ambulance Service.  It is part of the airport’s long-term land management strategy for development on the north side of the airfield.  The plan also includes the development of land for operational use, air related industry and economic growth to support local jobs.
Airport MD Jamie Christon said: “The relocation of the Air Support Unit and Air Ambulance brings the helicopters back to the airport after a long spell of absence.  We have worked hard with the Police Authority to facilitate the new operation here at the airport, close to its current base.”
