Flight training company TG Aviation’s bid to get an injunction against the closure of Manston Airport has been put back.
The company’s application to the High Court on Friday was adjourned until July 9.
Tasha Girdler of the family-run company said they had been told to produce evidence that it is being run in accordance with the rules of an unlicensed airport.
Tasha said: “The situation is devastating - my grandfather Ted who founded the company 30 years ago would be horrfied. We have got to remain positive and keep going.”
TG Aviation have been forced to move their business operations to Lydd airport, despite having 50 years left on their lease at Manston.
In a bid to return to the site, the family launched a case against Kent Facilities Limited owned by Stagecoach founder Ann Gloag.
The injunction would require the owners to give the company permission to use the runway.
The case was previously adjourned when Manston owners asked for more time to respond to TG Aviation’s case.
