General

This general aviation/military airport has only grass runways and a rich history. In 1909 the municipality agreed to build an air field in the north of Wiener Neustadt in order to support aviation. On this field the First Austrian Aviation Week took place only two years later, in 1911. It was the first official airport in Austria. Even flight pioneers like Igo Etrich, Karl Illner, or Adolf Warchalowski flew here. During the Second World War, many Me109 aircraft were built here. Nowadays this is the biggest unpaved airport in Europe and used by gliders, small general aviation aircraft and the Austrian Army Parachute School. For this reason, PC-6s are based here most of the times.

Layout

This large airport has many grass runways and glider strips. The hangars are all located at the southeast side along Flugfeldgürtel.
