It was two dream days: The Moosburg Flying Club celebrated its legendary airfield festival on the Whitsun weekend.
Moosburg – The airfield "Auf der Kipp" once again became a place of pilgrimage: In the usual manner, the airfield festival on the weekend consisted of the flight day on Saturday and the largest flea market in the region on Sunday. Several thousand visitors cavorted on the site – and a few of them also in the air.
"The location of our airfield is a bit unusual"
On the day of the flight, in addition to their beer garden at the runway and the evening party in the hangar, the hosts also offer the always fully booked sightseeing flights. "Landshut is really nice to look at from above," said Michael Ender, who is president of the Moosburg Narrhalla and also one of the most experienced pilots of the flying club, on Saturday. For flights, the directions north (Holledau) and east (Landshut) are specified as set because the airspace in the direction of Munich Airport is taboo. "The location of our airfield in nature is a bit unusual," said Ender. As a rule, such installations consist of an asphalt track on open ground. In Moosburg, he doesn't really see this change as necessary: "It's absolutely fine for our flight volume. And this airfield is really good together."

Michael Ender also made it clear that the airfield only serves the club and its members. External aircraft would have to request a landing, but that is not really what is intended. On the one hand, the flying club wants to keep the volume of flight movements in check with a view to the neighbors. On the other hand, there is a commercially operated airfield in Landshut, which is only a few kilometers away.

Ender is a stroke of luck for the flying club, because he is a flight instructor and aircraft mechanic in Eggenfelden. He is part of a team of mechanics who maintain and check the club aircraft every 100 flight hours. With him, Christian Wolf, Christian Hanke, Bernhard Schönauer and Jürgen Gebert, there are several trained technicians who take care of the safety measures on a voluntary basis. This means that the flying club does not have to buy the maintenance work that Ender offers with his company in Eggenfelden. However, the Moosburg pilot also made it clear that the rather short runway of 700 meters requires the pilot to think along. In the case of a machine occupied by four people, the total weight must not be too high. "Our airfield is a bit special," says Michael Ender.
This also applies to the airfield festival, which has a special charm. Many visitors are regulars and are already looking forward to the second edition in September.
The hour of the bargain hunter has struck
On day two, the bargain hunters' hours struck. If you wanted to have the best stands at the beginning of the runway, you had to arrive in the middle of the night. Experienced sellers and buyers appreciate this event as one of the best flea markets in southern Germany.
