The Allendorf/Eder commercial airfield was built in 1966. A fundamental modernization and expansion took place in 2005. Today, the airfield meets all the requirements of a modern business airport. Furthermore, the Allendorf commercial airfield serves as a home base for the Ederbergland air sports club.
The runway is 1240 meters long and 30 meters wide. The airfield altitude is 355 meters or 1,164 feet (ft). In addition, the runway is aligned at 112°/292°. Pilots can use our online form to send a ppr-request.
The Allendorf commercial airport has a GPS-supported approach system. Landings in poor visibility conditions are possible using instrument approach procedures. A modern approach lighting system (PAPI) supports instrument and visual approaches.
In addition, the airfield provides an automatic system for measuring and recording weather data. These are updated around the clock and can be accessed by radio (ATIS), telephone and internet.
Business aviation has traditionally been of great importance to Viessmann and is more important today than ever. On the one hand, the internationalisation of the company has progressed considerably in recent years. On the other hand, the commercial airport compensates for the inadequate connection of the region to the long-distance transport network.
About one third of all aircraft movements are accounted for by business flights. The majority of flights are used for time-saving transportation of customers travelling from all over Europe to visit the Viessmann Group headquarters.
From the self-launching glider ASK 21 to the high performance glider LS 8 up to single engine microlight aircraft, motor gliders and powered aircraft, the club fleet covers the entire spectrum of modern sports flying.
Flight instructors continuously train the club's youngsters in powered flight, powered gliding, gliding and microlight flight. To date, over 900 private pilots have been trained by the Ederbergland Aviation Sports Club.
Besides the flying activities, the community life is characterized by its many social events. The centre of the activities is the bistro "Tri-Sixty", which invites pilots and guests to coffee, cake and snacks.
