1. General information:
The airfield is run by Turun Lentokerho ry, and it is located about 50 kilometers northeast of Turku. During the summer there is plenty of light aircraft, hang glider, glider and motor glider activity.
Gliders are launched using a tow plane, and a winch which launches gliders to about 600 meters (1900 ft) altitude.
2. The Airport:
The airfield is in good condition. Both runways have asphalt surface. Runway 14/32 is wider, and more frequently in use. During winters runway 14/32 is sometimes open. There are no obstacles next to the runway, and gliders may land next to the asphalt if necessary. Runway markings have been repainted in 2008.
