Our MP, the Rt Hon Michael Gove (Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs), visited Fairoaks Airport on 7th July 2017 at our invitation to hear firsthand about the importance of the airport to the local community.

A wary flyer, nevertheless he took to the air to see the destructive impact on the environment of the airfield's closure for himself.  On the ground, he talked to business owners and other users of the airfield to improve his understanding of its importance to employment, education and innovation.
