Today I am starting a crowdfunding campaign for a feasibility study into the potential expansion of Bembridge airport for commercial airline use.
The full amount for such a study would be about £40000 . Even if we raised half that amount £20000 , I think we might get support from the council and other organisations that may be able to match fund. I believe this would speed up the process considerably .
I am sure there are thousands of Islanders and visitors alike who would love to be able to fly to and from the island more easily and often more cheaply than the expensive , unreliable ferries . Hopefully they , along with thousands of potential businesses on the island , would be willing to support my crowdfunding bid for the study .... especially as the project would give the island’s economy a desperately needed boost and would greatly enhance the island’s connectivity.
