The field is lawn covered. There may be small uneven spots. Some water may collect along the north edge right after a rainfall. The northeast end of the runway is a couple of metres higher than the southwest end. Consequently, when landing on runway 22 it seems shorter than it really is. Also, approach is made over a road higher than the surface of the runway. The clusters of trees around the field may create disturbing vortices on the field. There are no taxiways. The apron is in front of the shed. There are weights of concrete. In the winter the club strives to keep the field free of snow. In winter it is advisable to check the condition of the field by phone.
