Intersting Landing

This is a nice small airport with an interesting final approach and landing due to limited runway length.

Sad

The runway is in excelent condition. It has an upslope north to south.

The airport looks rather abandoned, with most of the buildings looking like they are falling apart and broken windows. Could be such a nice place.

Picture of PapaOscar

Information

Altough the runway is in good condition, the weeds can be quite rough and tall, due to the restrictions they have in cutting the weeds due to the airfield being inside a natural reserve.

Beautiful scenery

The aerodrome is abandoned, but the runway is still in excelent condition.

It has an upslope west to east.

Picture of PapaOscar

Expensive

Landing fees are around €12,50 per ton.

However, there is a nice restaurant within walking distance from the airfield.

Picture of PapaOscar

Very narrow

The dirt runway has become unusable.

On the east there is quite a big hill, so a straight in is difficult.

The runway is rather narrow, with trees and bushes not far from the runway edge.

Obstacle Course

The runway has a huge upslope east to west. The west end of the runway is full of antennas with supporting wires reaching all the way to the runway edge. On the aproach end it is full of windmills so a continuous turn from base to the treshold has to be made.

Information

Beautiful area and approach over Minho river.

Runway is now fully covered with tarp, and in very good condition.

In spite of the obstacles on both ends, it is not a difficult runway.

It's gone!

This plot of land now has some greenhouses and the airstrip is gone.

I landed there a few years ago but nowadays it is harder to spot the southeast limit and you really have to use it if you want to stop before the first road crossing because the ground is a bit uneven there.

Picture of radix

Good condition

The trees feel a bit too close if you're doing a low pass but at landing speeds, coming in from East, it's perfectly safe.

Weeds

High weeds but smooth surface below. Beautiful area.

Herdade do Pontal is a private runway with very little activity. It has more or less 8 ultralights based there.

The runway is in very good condition. There are obstacles on both ends of the runway, but the runway is long enough so is not a factor.

The beginning of the runway has a downslope, transitioning into an upslope.

3% upslope on runway 11. High trees on the final approach. With only 260m of runway it can be challenging.

Usable paved airstrip

Beware of a few things:

* There's a road crossing the strip, better call beforehand so that they close the road for your landing

* There's a tree hard to see tree (no leafs) right in your way when you come from North.

* The pavement has a little bump where the road crosses

* The pavement has some growing bushes but not a big deal

In 2016, it was announced that the airport would be renamed Madeira International Airport Cristiano Ronaldo in honour of Madeira native football player Cristiano Ronaldo.

The runway is closed and is divided by concrete blocks in 3 sections of ~300 meters, better avoid.

Good condition

Cool that the electrical lines are buried where they cross the strip but you'll probably break your landing gear if you try to land here, it's full of huge potholes.

Picture of radix

It's not suitable to land as it has meter high vegetation.

Picture of radix

Actually it's a grass runway and quite hard to spot if you're not familiar with it.

Airfield closed

Airfield closed to traffic since at least 5 years I believe. Has a public road crossing the former runway. A chapel on the site is dedicated to Our Lady of Loreto, considered the patron saint of air travellers and pilots by the Catholic Church.

Private agricultural airstrip of the "Monte da Quinta da Foz". Runway seems to have been left unused and non-maintained for some years and is in poor condition. Using Google Earth's historical imagery function to go back to a date prior to 2006 would make the runway clearly visible.
