SICG HQ, Bancs Ferrari Isle (ICAO: SL--) was a large search and rescue (SAR) facility located in the 'Bancs Ferrari Isle' region of far eastern Nautilus. As its name suggests, it is part of the privately-operated Seychelles Isles Estate. It was eventually incorporated into Seychelles Isles Airport.
- None reported...
Constructed in January 2015 as a base of operations for the Seychelles Isles Coast Guard (SICG), the Navel Air Station replaced their previous (and very short-lived) facility in the 'Emile Isle' region. The new airfield was equipped with a single asphalt runway, five helipads, a set of docks for boats and amphibious aircraft, several hangars and a large building with ATC tower (presumably designed to house medical, training and office space).
Following the construction of the adjacent Seychelles Isles Airport in January 2015, the SICG HQ in Bancs Ferrari Isle was incorporated into the new aerodrome - losing its dedicated runway and much of its land, but gaining the additional facilities provided by the new airport.
As a search-and-rescue facility, there were no scheduled services operating to or from SICG HQ, Bancs Ferrari Isle, however charter flights may have been available on request.
