The Aviation Experience is closed until further notice.
Why is it closed Smurphy?
The Aviation Experience at Birmingham Airport and The Aviation Gift Centre at
ceased trading on Tuesday 25-01-2011.
Airtrans Ltd the company operating both outlets went into liquidation on the
evening of the above date.
no notice was given about the impending closure.
Thanks Smurphy, it's not good. Views from the place were not to good but at least it was warm and dry. Where are all the regulers going now?
Some go to Long stay carpark 1, the car park by the flybe hangers and when on 15 the bridge at marston green train station,sheldon country park
It might be re-opened by another company..who knows!
Would be surprised if it wasn't bought by someone else, but then on the other hand someone could see more money in converting it into a restaurant/bar or something...
hopefully it re-opens and make it better like it once was before there changed it
Sorry to say but i think StarmonarA380 might be right. I bet that there's more money to be made in turning it into office space or restaurant space than a place for spotters. I've be there when its been empty all morning can't have been making much of a profit over the years and i started taking my daughter in the early 90s. It would be sad to lose it.
I've never been, but I was making it one of the places I'd like to visit fo photography. That' a No No Situation unless it gts re-opened and bought over by a new company. But I'm guessing maybe not.
I've heard that there is a new viewing area being developed. Can anyone get any images of this 'new area'?
I have heard many whispers this week that the airport are looking at the old terminal building as a permanent viewing centre and airport history museum once air traffic move out. I don't think there are any better views of the airfield. Nice to think they will preserve it.
