I was delighted to have a look over the first aircraft to be constructed in a Fareham Borough Council business hangar at Solent Airport, Daedalus It is a Britten-Norman Islander that will shorlty be ready for delivery.
Britten-Norman (BN) is a privately owned British aircraft manufacturer and aviation services provider. The company is the only independent commercial aircraft producer in the UK. Britten-Norman has sold more than 1,250 aircraft to customers in more than 120 countries.
Thank you to B-N Chief Executive William Hynett for showing me around hangars 5 and 6. I am pleased that thay are working well for you and that you have such a significant presence at our airport.
