Räyskälä (EFRY) information


Räyskälä is famous for its flat terrain, with forests, lakes and fields, long days in the summer time and good thermal conditions. There are no tricks in flying in Räyskälä.

We have four paved runways with associated taxiways. There is ample room for landings and adequate parking facilities for gliders. The airfield is also the base of the Finnish Sports Flying Institute. Besides several gliding clubs there is also ultra light and experimental aircrafts.

Towing services are available daily during summer time.
