An area has been identified as “Interim Aviation Support Facilities” on the Master Plan. This area currently houses BP Fuelling Facilities and a Hangar facility.
It is the intention of this Master Plan that the area is reserved for future growth of the apron and terminal. As a result uses of the area in the interim should be kept to non-permanent facilities. The BP fuel facility can eventually be pushed east nearer the future freight reserve. The existing hangar can be relocated into the General Aviation area.
Air BP Facility
The current facility is in an excellent condition and well maintained by the current operator. All infrastructure is owned by the lessee. The Avgas swipe bowser located on the main apron is also maintained by the current operator to an acceptable standard. The swipe bowser is to be removed and a 12000 litre self-bundled above ground card swipe avgas tank is to be situated on the northern GA apron to service GA aircraft and remove them from the RPT apron. The Air BP fuel depot is to be resited to an expanded Southern Apron.
The band new purpose built facility is in an excellent condition and well maintained by the current operator. All infrastructure is owned by the lessee. Aerorefuellers have the capability to 'hot refuel' aircraft when required.
