Great little airport with plenty of action

Grenchen Airport is perfect for learning to fly, has hard surface and grass runway 07 / 25.

There are many nice special events, like the helicopter-weekend, and the modelaircraft show, besides parajumping and glider activities.

Or, take a scenic ride in a vintage Antonov AN-2, the largest biplane ever produced (which is stationed there) to the beautiful swiss alps and back, always a wonderful experience. Space for up to 12 passengers, flown by two pilots. See: http://www.avschweiz.ch/

The airport also has a Best Western Hotel & restaurant.

Nice Airport near city of Zug, BUT PRIOR PERMISSION REQUIRE

probably nobody takes the phone when you call this airport. thats why it is very quiet here and you see almost no traffic on that airport. but you are anyway welcome. I can help to get a permission for your landing / training here. And I can help if you look for an aircraft to rent. +4179 671 5538.

Great little airport

I was there as a visitor a couple years ago, it's the home of a DeHavilland Tiger Moth, a Broussard, and other interesting aircraft. In summer, parajumpers are getting their ride in a Pilatus Porter, this is the perfect airfield for it (grass runway)

It's a real homey place, has very friendly staff and you can also get BBQ food there and just enjoy the activities from the garden restaurant.

Has a webcam too, just Google for it.

Broken WiFi

There were only two open WiFi signals showing up in my departure area (the B gates), and both of them redirected to the same server error on 2010-03-14. Unless you have your own 3G stick, don't count on working online while waiting for your flight.

Arrive early for your flight

GVA is a only medium-sized hub, but it's slower than a lot of big airports like LAX or CDG.

When I arrived for an Air Canada flight on a Sunday morning, there were already hundreds of people in several confused long lines for the AC checkin counter more than two hours before the departure time, and service was very slow (most of them had skis in huge bags to check). The security line was also long and slow, and I heard loud British passengers complaining they were late for their flights. After security, you have to line up a third time to show your passport for exit control (that wasn't a long line), then you line up a fourth time to show your passport and boarding card at the gate about 30 minutes before boarding, then you line up the fifth (and final) time to board the plane.

The moral is not to cut it close: at least on the weekend, 2 hours early for an international flight from Geneva should be a minimum, not a maximum. Or if you can, pick an airport like Paris CDG or Frankfurt FRA that's a bit better organized.

Ground transportation from GVA

Taxis are expensive in Geneva, even for the short distance from the airport to the Pâquis or downtown (CHF 34, more than EUR 20, for a few kilometers).

The good news is that you can take the train to the main station in the Pâquis in 10 minutes (there's a train every 10 minutes or so), or the 5 bus in about 20 minutes (it passes the exposition hall and the United Nations on the way). If you're staying at a Geneva hotel, when you check in you'll get a card for free Geneva public transit — including the tram, bus and train — for the duration of your stay, so the ride back to the airport will be free.

First Solo!!

Did my first sole here a looong time ago! Note the shortness of the strip which makes it good for training.

I once served here when there were jets flying.

re: ID?

Thanks, Paul. I've switched it to the civil identifier, since that's more generally useful.

Picture of ptomblin

ID?

I think this is one of those airports where the military operation and the civil operation have different ICAO codes - if you google it, you get about 50/50 split between LSTA and LSMN. The ICAO "LocationIdentifiersbystate.pdf" says that LSMN is the military one.

Contact info for Bex

An anonymous OurAirports visitor who wanted to book a sightseeing flight from Bex airport sent in this information:

"Just in case you ever want to know the number for Bex Airport, it's 024 463 24 40, and when you call that, they give another number: 078 607 97 22 and when you ring that, there's a message that he's flying and he'll get back to me ..."
