Land acquired in 1931, opened in 1934. Initially for linking the Northern Isles with London. Became an RAF base in WWII and although fighters were based there during the Battle of Britain, it was mainly a Photographic Reconnaisance base. In 1947, it became part of the British Airports Authority. The first energy industry rotary wing operations began in 1967, and as the offshore hydrocarbon sector grew, so did traffic. In 2003 with over 35000 helicopter movements, Aberdeen was the busiest rotary wing base in the world.
