re: Reported as (temporarily) closed

Reply to @david: Reopened in 2018 but only for military use, which seems to remain the case in 2023.

As of 2023

The cleared area at the south end of the runway trace is clearly a soccer field.

Active 1922-1963

Namesake of the "Aerodrom" area, this first airport for Skopje was in use from 1922 until the day of the Skopje earthquake, 26 Jul 1963, when it and 80% of the city of Skopje were destroyed.

Claims to fame (infamy?)

re: Uninhabited island

Reply to @david: The complication here is that listing this as "France" defaults it to being in Europe, which geographically, it absolutely clearly isn't! Unfortunately, unlike every other French possession, it lacks its own jurisdictional codes ... for now.

Heliport oddity!

Evidently a heliport aboard a stationary boat (the Commandant Fourcault) which has an ICAO code?!?

Temporary heliport

In use primarily for the World Economic Forum.

I flew in here in about 1994 doing a CAP border recce. I have to say it was the scariest thing I'd ever been a part of in civil aviation. The PIC "Dave" had been there multiple times before. The brush along the sides of the runway was so high that a low wing plane would not have been able to land there. They said it was 30 feet wide,but it was more like 10-15 feet wide. We landed to the NW, uphill. After landing we taxied back and shut down. The treat about this place was that the owner had a one table "restaurant" at the bottom. He came out and fixed us lunch.The owner apparently used to work as a geologist right across the border.

The takeoff was rather interesting. It took almost full power to taxi up to the top of the hill. We prepped for a SE departure, Short Field flaps (C-172/180hp) held the brakes, full power. The upper portion of the runway (RY11 I think) was flat, with what seemed like a precipitous drop off after about 500'. The C172 basically just flew off the edge and kept flying. A sharp left to stay inside US airspace and we were off!

I never went back, but I will also never forget it. All the rest of the airports we landed at that trip were easy in comparison.

Im sorry to see it closed, now with 4000 more hours than I had then (150 hours then) I'd definitely try it again.The food was pretty good too.

re: 1999 Kosovo peace agreement signed here

Reply to @david: It's pretty rough-looking, but the airfield is still in use by rugged GA aircraft.

Aviation Museum

While still an active air base, this is also home to Kbely Aviation Museum, one of the largest of its kind in the world, featuring hundreds of airframes ranging from WWI to the present day, many one-of-a-kind or rare. Many of the outdoor airframes are readily visible from this website by zooming in on the north side of the airfield complex on satellite view.

Famous but not famous

Conejo Valley Airport, also known as Janss Airport,[1] was an airport in Thousand Oaks, California. It had a 2,600 foot runway and was located adjacent to Thousand Oaks Boulevard. The airport opened in 1926, but was relocated in the early 1960s. The new airport, known as Rancho Conejo Airport, was established on the north side of State Highway 101. Various movies were filmed at Conejo Valley Airport, including The Paleface (1948), Riders of the Whistling Pines (1949),[2] and Overland Stage Raiders (1938).[3] Rancho Conejo Airport appeared in the film It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963).[4][5]

I am lucky to know academic experts who help me with my learning tasks because I have a part-time student job, and it is hard to manage everything. So edubirdie.com/assignment-help is the service that offers professional assignment help online. Therefore, I have no worries I will not get an A grade since I know my exercises are done with support from expert writers. I wish good luck to everyone, and you can try this source to improve your study success.

re: Baja trip

I was there a long time ago. I'm pretty sure they had fuel. May want to call and see. I don't know if it was an airport of entry as I went through San Felipe at that time. We went in February. I'm not sure if they are there with babies in October. We got to pet them though and it was a really great experience.

SGAS actual location

While the actual location of SGAS is in Luque city, people commonly associate this airport with Asuncion. This association is reflected in its official IATA code, "ASU", and ICAO code, SGAS, where 'SG' stands for Paraguay and 'AS' for Asuncion. Therefore, I suggest to change location to Asuncion.

re: Education in very important

explain well because I personally didn't understand shit I'm Italian, and your phrases of philosophy have nothing to do with what you show us.

what is it? is it an airport or a university?

and if it is a university what kind of university is it? is it a study academy for those who want to start studying aeronatic sciences? and a pilot school? in short what the heck is it?

Picture of miller67

Education in very important

University and essay are closely interconnected in the realm of education. A University is an institution where students engage in learning and receive formal education. An essay, on the other hand, is a written piece of work that allows students to demonstrate their understanding of various subjects, topics, or concepts. Essays are often assigned as tasks by teachers to assess students' knowledge, critical thinking skills, and ability to communicate effectively through written expression.

Aviosuperficie Leonardo da Vinci.

the name of the original runway is not CLASIC AIRFIELD but LEONARDO DA VINCI I have updated and corrected the name, plus it used to be classified as (campo di volo) today it is classified as (aviosuperficie) so both U.L.M. ultralight and G.A. general aviation aircraft can land there or updated the runway data.
