ABOUT THE AIRPORT
After more than 25 years, aircraft are returning to Písek-Krašovice Airport. From 1965 the airport was used by the army. Initially an Mi-1 and Mi-4 helicopter squadron were based there and later it was the base of the state air defence using the Tupolev Tu-143 unmanned aircraft. The army shut down the airport in 1995.
