In 1930, Airwork Ltd took up the majority shareholding in Aerofilms Ltd. Nigel Norman and Alan Muntz had formed Airwork Ltd in order to set up an aerodrome at Heston as a centre for private flying; both men owned their own aircraft and were well-known figures at flying meetings. The modern buildings emphasise their forward-looking drive - Heston was not going to be a cheap-and-cheerful municipal field with a fuel pump and agricultural buildings for hangars.



Aerofilms Ltd even had a showroom on site, with cameras, photographic film and aerial services for sale to Heston's members and visitors.
