If you fly aircraft, work in aviation or live or work near an airfield, the below information could help you.

Project Pegasus is a national project aimed at reducing the threat from organised crime and terrorism involving aircraft.

Although no large commercial airports are located in Wiltshire, we have a number of private aerodromes, small club strips and farmers' fields.

It is impossible for officers to monitor every single aircraft coming in and out of the county, and that is why we need your help.

Here's how you can help:

If you're a pilot or owner of an aircraft, you need to be aware of your responsibilities and complying with them and by being vigilant and notifying us of anything suspicious.

Contact the police immediately if you find:

  • Evidence of unauthorised activity at your airstrip e.g. fresh tyre marks.
  • Packages being transferred from an aircraft to a vehicle in unusual locations such as a remote part of an airfield.
  • Activity or sightings of aircraft at night or unused airstrips.
  • Strangers trying to hire your aircraft - or those belonging to other club members.
  • Strangers using, or seeking permission to use, your airstrip.
  • Evidence of adaptation of aircraft for concealment purposes.

If you notice anything suspicious or unusual:

  • Never involve yourself
  • Don't touch suspicious packages.
  • Make a note of any registration numbers, markings or descriptions.

If you have any information or concerns, regarding the above, about your homeport or visiting port, please do not hesitate to contact us on 101 or 999 in an emergency.
