Fulfilling all the requirements of a modern business airport

The Allendorf (Eder) airfield was built in 1966 and extensively modernised and expanded in 2005. Today, it fulfills all the requirements of a contemporary business airport. It also serves as a base for the Ederbergland Aviation Club, which uses it for youth activities in particular.

Landing Strip

Runway

The runway is 1240 metres long and 30 metres wide.

Instrument approach

The airfield has a GPS-supported approach system, so that even when visibility is poor, landing is possible using instrument approach procedure. A modern navigation light system (PAPI) supports instrument and visual approach.

Weather system Vaisala AW11: The Allendorf airfield has an automatic system for measuring and recording weather data. This data is updated round the clock and is available via radio (ATIS) and phone.

Business flights

Airport for business contacts

The airfield at Allendorf is an important part of the local infrastructure and therefore a significant success factor.

International markets

Business flights have traditionally played a key role for Viessmann and are now even more important than ever. On the one hand, the internationalisation of the company over the past few years has advanced considerably, with foreign business accounting for 56 percent of turnover. On the other hand, links from the region’s inadequate motorway network have not improved since the commercial airfield was inaugurated.

Business operations
Customer group

Customers visits to Allendorf

Around a third of all flights are commercial. The majority of flights transport customers, saving them travel time. They come from across Europe to visit the Viessmann Group head office. Here they can get a broad picture of the company behind the products, and see where they are designed and assembled every day. They can also learn more about the strategic sustainability project implemented by Viessmann at the Allendorf (Eder) site.

Luftsportverein Ederbergland e. V. aviation club

Since the airfield was built in 1966, it has been used as a base by Luftsportverein Ederbergland e.V. aviation club. The development of the former glider airstrip into the current advanced commercial airfield enabled Allendorf (Eder) to offer private pilots optimum conditions in attractive surroundings. Training and youth activities are a main focus of the club

Club flight instructors run training sessions throughout the year for motorised flights, power gliders, gliders and microlights. Over 500 private pilots have been trained by the Ederbergland Aviation Club. Many of them have gone on to achieve remarkable sporting successes – at regional level, as well as at national and European championships. Youth work continues to be a primary focus for the club's members.

Glider

Advanced range of aircrafts

The members, totalling more than 300, have access to a pool of advanced aircraft. With the self-launch capable ASK 21 Mi glider for novices and the LS 8 high performance glider for the competitive side of the sport, right through to single engine microlights, power gliders and Piper or Cessna motorised planes, the club's fleet of aircraft covers the entire recreational flying spectrum.

Varied club activities

Club life is shaped on the one hand by flying activities, and on the other by social events such as hikes, barbecues, parties, as well as slide show and film evenings. This year's highlights are the power flyer's grand foreign excursions, and the glider group's flying camps at home and abroad. The Tri-Sixty bistro with its viewing terrace provides coffee and cake for flyers and guests.
