2. General information:
Kauhava, a former Finnish Air Force field, offers an excellent environment for aviation activities. The field is owned by LSK Business Park Oy, and operated by Ilmasotakoulun Lentokerho Ry (local flying club). Kauhava is an active gliding and general aviation airfield. Additionally, there is a lot of paragliding and aero-modelling activity. The field is located just a couple of kilometers from Kauhava downtown with all basic services close at hand.

Ref: OPS M1-28
Occasionally, there may be lots of para-gliding car-tow activity on the RWY, from GND to 1000 meters. In addition to normal radio calls and before joining the traffic pattern for landing, all arriving traffic is ordered to circle the airfield in every circumstance to eliminate the risk of hitting the poorly visible towing cable. Observe the airspace especially carefully.
Other general information:
No winter maintenance. Please notice that an open airfield may be slippery or even in unusable condition. Operator does not guarantee RWY availability 24/7. PIC holds the final responsibility. If needed, please contact the airfield boss for more information.
