1. General information:
Nummela is a lively Airport located on a ridge formed during the Ice-age in the middle of the Nummela town. During the summer, there is a lot of glider activity conducted by the four gliding clubs operating on the airport. Flight training is also on the menu conducted by the Nummela Gliding Center.
Because the field is located in the middle of the Nummela town, we try to limit the noise to a minimum. For this reason, touch and go landing training is prohibited. Between 1900-0700 UTC (during summer 1800-0600 UTC) flights is limited to only necessary arrivals and departures
We wish to welcome all visiting aircraft’s to the aerodrome, but we advise you to familiarize yourself with the LDG chart and the existing NOTAM’s.
2. The Airport:
Main runway: 04-22; asphalt surface section about 1200 meters, the threshold at runway 22 after intersection of runways. Before the threshold of runway 22 is narrow asphalt surface starting area (length approx. 200 m) and landing area (wide asphalt) for gliders.
When using runway 04 gliders land on the runway if traffic permits.
The windsock is located at the intersection of the runways – in the east-north-east sector.
The signal square is next to the windsock.
Aerodrome Traffic Circuits: The main traffic circuit of the sailplanes is left – tow planes use operationally most advantageous traffic circuit and runway, which often differs from what the gliders are using (the most common situation: gliders – Runway 22, tow planes – runway 27).
Apron is located along the main runway next to the car parking.
