Biggin Hill lies at the heart of a community of residents and businesses. One of just three commercial airports within the boundary of London, it is much more than just a place for aircraft to land and take off.
Biggin Hill is a cluster of engineering and technology companies for aviation and related industries where people are trained and developed into well paid sustainable jobs as mechanics, electricians, and electronic engineers.
These pages are designed to give the local community a better idea about what happens at the airport, including an opportunity to see behind the scenes in person through our Open Day tours or through our videos and articles.
Biggin Hill plays a huge role in the local community, from offering educational trips for schools and community groups to supporting apprenticeships and local community initiatives including fundraising and donations to local organisations. Over 1,000 people work on or around the airport, often in skilled positions with a host of employment opportunities related to each business here.
