Historical Information

Strausberg Märkische Heimat für Flieger und FlugzeugbauFlight has an interesting history at Strausberg, that can be traced back to the beginnings of the conquest of the air at the start of the last century.

From the outset, the history of flight is now the subject of a separate work. An exact summary of data, events and photographs can be found in the collection, "Strausberg Märkische Heimat für Flieger und Flugzeugbau" (“Strausberg, the Home for Flyers and Aircraft Construction in the Mark”), published by Helmut Bukowski / Rolf Apel.

For those who wish to delve into the history of the airport, the airport museum, lovingly completed in 2008, offers information from the airport’s inception to its current status.

High grade and professionally prepared information boards located among aircraft components provide an overview of the past 85 years. Who is aware that the airport was founded during the 1920’s, and that notable fliers such as Beate Uhse started off from here? Entry to the airport museum is free.
