Redhill Airport The airfield dates from the 1930s for private flying and it was used as an alternate airfield to Croydon by Imperial Airways.An Elementary Flying Training School was set up here in 1937 but moved in 1940. It then became an RAF station mainly of fighter squadrons – some Polish. It went out of RAF use in1947 and entirely in 1954 and it was not until 1959 when the Tiger Club began to use it and then Bristow Helicopters. It is now operated by Redhill Aerodrome Limited.
