The Airport of Buochs was built in the 1940-ies as a military airbase for the Swiss Air Force. Through the years, various aerospace industry companies started to settle around the airport as well. The best know are Pilatus Aircraft, who have had their headquarters at the Airport of Buochs for more than 60 years. Companies like RUAG Aerospace and Aerolite also have a presence at Buochs.
The military Airbase of Buochs (NW) is a “Sleeping Base” for the Swiss Air Force. Should the necessity arise, the whole infrastructure can be made ready and available for military use. The airbase itself is in the maintained and owned by Air Force, though it is run as a civil airport by The Airport Buochs Ltd.
The Airport of Buochs used to be the competence centre for the Mirage III aircraft. All regular maintenance, modifications and repair work were done here. All appliances (engines, mechanics, hydraulics, Avionics, guided missiles, etc.) were maintained, repaired and modified at Buochs as well. By the end of 1999 the last Mirage III planes were retired. There is one of these legendary planes left as an exhibition piece at the Airport of Buochs. This Mirage III comes alive also in our FS Scenery.
