Kempten Durach airfield is the highest and the second southernmost general aviation airfield in Germany.
The airfield is located at an altitude of 713.2 m MSL (2340 ft) and has as a special feature two intersecting grass runways (RWY 25 and 25: 850m x 30 m grass; RWY 17 and 35: 900 x 30 m).
The airfield is licensed for aircraft of all types up to 3000kg MTOW. There are 4 hangars, an idyllic and highly recommended airfield café, a fuel station, also a customs clearance and a helipad at the airfield. In addition, the Christoph 17 rescue helicopter squadron is on site next to the airfield.
Furthermore, you have the possibility of alpine sightseeing flights and briefings as well as flight training through the flight school Michael Bergmann or the air sports group Kempten as well as the Westallgäuer air sports group or parachute jumps in a dreamlike area close to the mountains.
Kempten was also flown to several times- besides the folding mechanism of the hangar, the original church of Durach, all banners and advertisements as well as flight schools and club house are to be mentioned here. The challenge in the simulator was mainly the cross runway with grass runway as well as the different altitude profiles in the simulator.
