The buildings were demolished in 2004 to make way for Parc Aberporth, a high tech business park.
The only R.A.F buildings from the 1940’s left on the site, until January 2011, were the Sergeants Mess group, and one Hanger, which are now all owned by West Wales Airport.
The Officers Married Quarters are now private houses.

The station was handed over to RAE Aberporth who continued to operate the Airfield and Control Tower and run the camp on a care and maintenance basis until it’s future could be decided.
Cardigan & Aberporth 1429 ATC Squadron continued using their hut near the tower, until the site went under the control of the Welsh Development Agency and West Wales Airport. Many of the station artefacts were passed to 1429 ATC Squadron for safe keeping.
In 2004 as the site was being redeveloped, the ATC were relocated to an MOD building near the site of the FPS16 Radar buildings at Parclyn.
The ATC Hunter aircraft, in need of much TLC, was sold off by the RAF to a Motel (£3000) in the Midlands, where money was apparently available to overhaul it. More about this can be found in the history of 1429 Aberporth and Cardigan ATC pages.
