Balvi (03/21)

Home  /  Airfields  /  Current Page
×General

Former agricultural airfield with a non-typical runway size of 500x30m (there are only two airfields in Latvia with such runways, and the second one is Naakotne). Although runway surface seems in normal condition, the high trees at the end of the runway makes takeoff RWY21 and landing RWY03 practically impossible. In calm wind conditions the airfield can be accessed by landing on RWY21 but only with caution considering the edge of the forest almost on the runway centerline. WARNING: temporary obstacle - tires on the runway.

Effectivity: 2016-07-10

Location: 7 km SSW of Balvi.
