Our home base is the Bamberg-Breitenau Airport (EDQA), which was used by the US Armed Forces as an airport for fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters and as a training grounds. The US military returned the airport to the discretionary control of the Federal Republic of Germany on 30 June 2012. During the conversion process that followed, the runway was widened to 23.5m and the taxiways were adjusted to meet civilian aircraft operation regulations - including an approach lighting system with a precision approach path indicator (PAPI).
The government of Middle Franconia issued an aviation law permit for Bamberg-Breitenau to operate as a special airfield on 20 August 2013. The latest measure was the construction of a new operating building featuring a tower and hangars that was also modified to meet the latest airfield requirements and officially opened on 21 November 2015.
