    History of this Location


    Service to St Marys and Tresco began quietly on 17 Mar 2020 with a pair of leased AW109SP-GN, while its planned AW139 is held up in China by the COVID19 outbreak.

    The ICAO code EGHK from the old Eastern Green site was re-used for the new heliport. (Thanks to Sloane Helicopters for this confirmation).
