Sky Charter UK Limited
The Helicopter Centre, Manston Park, Kent, CT12 5DE

During the Second World War, the area now known as Manston Park formed part of RAF Manston; in 1944 a large hangar was built which formed part of an area known as "The Loop", used for aircraft repair. After the war it was used by US Airforce, then Invicta Airways in the 1970s, before land was sold to Jade's Farm. During the 1990s the Kent International Business Park was built, and the hangar became part of Sky Charter UK, a helicopter training and charter firm.
