Gatwick Airport Aviation Enthusiasts Watch Scheme
Like most other airports in the UK, Gatwick has an aviation enthusiast’s scheme. Gatwick’s membership continues to grow and currently has 500 members..
In conjunction with the Gatwick Aviation Society and ‘The Original Gatwick Spotters News Group’ on Google, an Aviation Enthusiasts ID Card Scheme has been set up similar to those at some other airports to promote a closer working relationship with enthusiasts.
The card is available to those who complete an application form. We ask that you produce the card when requested by any Police Officer or Airport Security staff member whilst at the airport and surrounding areas. The ID card does not give you any additional rights over any other member of the public.
Membership enables us to have contact, providing an overview of what we are looking for and a contact for you to report anything suspicious.
If you are interested in applying for membership, please complete our application form. Due to the security of the airport, part of the process is that your personal details will be checked on the Police National Computer. We do look at criminal records and convictions and we reserve the right to refuse membership.
We review membership every five years so if your circumstances ever change then please inform us as soon as possible.
