Ruling out certificated means EASA regulated aerodromes e g those with a runway 800m or longer, open to Commercial Air Transport with an Instrument Approach or Departure.
mischievous thought .. Plymouth currently is not 'Certificated, Government or Military', is not 'EASA Regulated', has no runway longer than 800m (except for 2 marked 'disused' in white paint), is not open to CAT, and has no currently validly promulgated Instrument Approach or Departure, and has no passenger footfall through its Terminal. Could the Owner (the Council) bid for some of thgis money to engage a suitable Consultant (and legal advice in support) who could explain how to get the Leaseholder to reopen the airport (or get out of the way) ?
[It struck me a while ago that the Leaseholder, a property company, has potentially very deep pockets to afford to wait and do nothing while retaining lawyers and consultants to enable this, until reopening seems impossible. The Council could never afford to match that budget for lawyers and consultants. However, Treasury Solicitor has effectively infinitely deep pockets ..
