    It would be honest to say, that rwy is not so wide. In summertime, it’s narrow strip of mowed grass and both sides are used for plants. In winter time, when it’s cleared, it’s also very narrow, so be extremely careful while landing here at this time. But overall runway condition is good and it’s well drained after rains.

      Thanks for the comment! Yeah, this 650m comes from old sources when the field was used for DOSAAF gliders and then it was literally possible to land any direction. Now the grass is being cut around 20m wide, so I will correct the info.
