The airport is equipped to handle VFR (Visual Flight Rules) traffic and is situated on the southern border of the TMA Čáslav Military Airport. During the take-off one should respect the fact that the runway 15 is slightly uphill and the take off distance increases, landing the opposite way “downhill” on RWY 33 increases the landing distance of the arriving aircraft. Throughout the year the wind blows in perpendicular direction to the RWY’s. Sometimes with light SE winds RWY 33 (down hill) is used. In such case aircraft take off with light tail wind and land on opposite RWY 15 with headwind. During the spring and summer gliding season the airfield host many sailplanes, therefore the traffic becomes quite dense.
To aviation or non-aviation public the airfield offers sightseeing flights on gliders and powered aircraft, and space for flying models, technical and social background (hangars, swimming pool, playground, restaurant and accommodation).
