General

Located on the northern half of the island of Texel, this is one of the busiest general aviation airfields in the Netherlands. Especially during the summer, the field gets really busy with parajumpers and visiting aircraft. In the past, Texel has hosted the Texel Airshow, even with fighter jets like the Harrier and L-39 participating from the grass runway. Texel is the island closest to Den Helder.

Layout

The area is flat and generally green, and the airfield itself is no exception. All the hangars are located near the airport building so everything can easily be seen.

Getting There

As could be expected, getting here involves taking a boat or an airplane. Ferries leave Den Helder harbour for Texel at regular intervals. From the harbour at Texel, you can either take a bus, rent a bike or drive the car you ferried. The airport lies north of Den Burg, next to Zuid-Eierland.

Around The Airport
1
Viewing Area

As with many a 'green airport' the main entrance and restaurant with viewing area are the usual starting point. The preserved F-104 welcomes you when entering the field. Photography is mostly into the sun, unless permission to enter the aircraft parking area can be obtained.
