Former soviet air force base. After soviet collapse used mainly by Rigas Aeroklubs for parachute dropping and general aviation activities. The aerodrome was built with 2500m long runway, which was gradually shortened to 800m after the aerodrome was let to privatisation. Recently the bushes around the RWY have been cut, so the runway is safer to use. WARNING: aerodrome is now frequently used for paragliding activities WARNING: temporary obstacle - timber stacks on both sides of the RWY at THR RWY27
