I found the IATA code still mentioned at IATA's website, so I added it.

As of 2017 it DOES seem to be closed, at least it no more figures in the Belgian AIP.

I checked the frequencies against the AIP, they looked quite OK. Only I removed the FIS - it was, confusingly, called an AFIS :( - because it is useless on a controlled airport like this one.

This is a duplicate to LFTR

Very short runway, cross to the prevailing winds, and with dense wood just south. Not for beginners, nor for fast planes. Also, the place is within the CTR of Kleine Brogel Air Base EBKB, thus not normally available on weekdays. PPR absolutely mandatory. Owner is a very friendly and helpful person, but the field is rather spartan.

Reported as being "private" or "only accepting local traffic"

double entry

The actual field is a bit to the north west, and is duly mentioned in this database under its correct ICAO code of EDHP.

This entry is a double for GB-0316, which is however more complete.

Admin pls. remove.

Re-added the ICAO as it is now in the AIP, as found on Eurocontrol.

Apparently this is a seasonal or even occasional ice runway on the Mjøsa lake.

I removed it from openstreetmap too, since that mention based upon the authority of ourairports. The dangers of open data sources depending one on the other!

Double entry, mr admin pls remove

Confusing situation...

This is the western part of the former RAF base, including the North-South runway. It is operated by the Ouse Gliding Club. The Eastern part is operated separately by the "York Flying Club".

closed, and yet...

According to official sources, this field is closed; however certain sources seem to indicate landing there is not completely impossible. The NON-OFFICIAL aerodrome database, edition 2015, (www.aerobaze.cz) even mentions the availability of AvGas and MoGas.

Not for the faint of heart...

...this field may be not every pilot's first preference: a runway of only 280 m, at 3080' AMSL, and with a 13% slope.

Restaurant

Excellent restaurant (or at least, it used to be) La Dönzeletta.

Castelnuovo Don Bosco

This field is home to the ICP factory of ultralight aeroplanes.

There are a couple of bedrooms available for visiting pilots.

Restaurant

In 2014 I had one of my all-time best meals at the nearby "Il Pilota" restaurant.

new info

Previous comment seems no more valid: the field has now been assigned an ICAO code LFJY and is home to at least one aeroclub.

MIL use only

...except for the Ju-52's that breed so well.

Good place to go

Very fine restaurant on site "De Kei". Intense glider activity including winch launching, overhead joins are a NO NO.

Short runway?

Do not be daunted by the published runway length of 150 metres - there are longish extensions each way, and the lawn is tended better than any golf course could be. Totally unobstructed approaches, too, but do mind the unavoidable ubiquitous difficult neighbours, as mentioned in the a/d documents. Do consult the website, and mind the PPR.

Yutz field closed

Sadly closed in 2013. Local pilots hope to create an ULM runway one day.

Leopoldsburg

Agreeing with the comment by FvH, I changed the name. Though formally a military field, this place is only rarely used by the Air Force, but sees lively recreational flying on weekends and holidays.

EBNE Neerpelt: not for beginners!

Very short runway, cross to the prevailing winds, and with dense wood just south. Not for beginners, nor for fast planes. Also, the place is within the CTR of Kleine Brogel Air Base EBKB, thus not normally available on weekdays. PPR absolutely mandatory.

re: Any information??

Apologies for my previous comment (mr admin, could you remove it?)

EBCS Saint Remy appears to be alive and kicking, but it is indeed an ULM-only field. And for an ULM-field, it is not that bad:

06 / 24 Gras 200 m x 50 m – 060° / 240° - Beschikbare lengte :312 m

15 / 33 Gras 350 m x 50 m - 150° / 330° - Beschikbare lengte : 396 m

( info from the "ULIP" on www.fed-ulm.be )

Very little accomodation, though: no workshop, no resto, no bar, fuel and oil only on request.
