Located inside the M25 and with excellent connectivity into Central London and the high-speed European rail network, Biggin Hill enjoys a first-rate reputation as a Business Aviation centre of excellence in the UK (ranking amongst the top 15 in Europe).
LoCATE provides a unique space for aerospace professionals to conduct operations, management and maintenance at the heart of a global city; Biggin Hill is inside the M25, with good rail, road and helicopter links into Central London, as well as Ebbsfleet for the high-speed European rail network.
