Glad we were able to help. I've suggested a return to the 'old' system of waiving the landing fee if you uplift fuel but to no avail.
When I first started working there, based aircraft had to uplift fuel from Blackbushe as the then airport operator had failed to pay the bill to the fuel supplier.

From 4 to 18 Jul incl, whenever Farnborough RA(T) #1 is active, all circuits will be to the north of the airfield and departures from runway 24 must carry out a right turn and depart via OCK not above 1400ft, unless a departure to the west can be co-ordinated with Farnborough.

That's the reason for HeliAir departing so I was told - the new owners of the GAMA hangar and adjacent offices hiked the rent; I hasten to add they're nothing to do with Fairoaks Operations Ltd who run the airfield so the increase does not go toward improving airfield facilities.
CHC and Elite will be occupying the old Alan Mann Helicopters building previously part occupied by Heli Air.
