Former agricultural airfield let down in a quite poor state. A road is crossing the field, sand and dirt is on the runway. There are also several bushes on both sides of the runway. South of the airfield there is are fields with bushes, thereby landing on 04 and takeoff on 22 is not recommended. North of the field situation is slightly better, still there are trees quite close to the runway. Generally this airfield is only suitable for emergency use.
