Farway Common Airfield in Devon is to reopen under new owners.
The airfield, located 9nm east of Exeter, closed last year after the death of owner and operator Terry Case.
The new owner is James Hartrop, who flies a Navion. James told FLYER’s Ian Seager, “Somehow we managed to buy an airfield! We have some big plans. First will be a housewarming fly-in in May/June time.”
@FarwayCommon is under new ownership! We are so looking forward to welcoming #pilots, #GA #aviation enthusiasts & #Aircraft owners back in 2022. Busy getting the website, runways etc ready & will let you know our reopening date soon! @iancseager @pilot_mag @Arthurvw1986
