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.
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.
