Join us with your entire family and mingle with the participating pilots - and for some hours become part of our flying community.

What is a Fly-In?

We do not organise an "air show" but rather a relaxed get-together of people who are excited about aviation.
This means that there will not be any displays or performances and there will be no programme. But it also means that you will probably get more familiar with the historic air-planes and their pilots than in any other place.

The pilots come in their free time and of their own accord. They will fly as they please and have a great weekend with friends as they join all the visitors at the aerodrome.

How to get to Flugplatz Bienenfarm?

Many ways lead to the beautiful Havelland and Bienenfarm airfield: No matter if by plane, car, train or bicycle. Therefore first a rough orientation: The airfield is located in Brandenburg, more precisely about 30 km west of Berlin near Nauen.

By aeroplane

We have summarised the exact approach information on the [pilots page of the Bienenfarm airfield] ( "Approach information airfield Bienenfarm - EDOI").

In a nutshell: ICAO-Code EDOI, Channel 134.990 MHz, approx. 15 nm west-northwest of Berlin below the airspace C of Berlin which starts at 3500 ft MSL. Our grass field with the orientation of 12/30 860 metres long. The north-bound pattern is at 900 ft.

Very important: Please avoid the surrounding villages during the approach and departure and especially keep to the north of the airfield. Please do not fly over Paulinenaue in extension of runway 30!

By car

The airfield is located about 2 km east of the village Paulinenaue in its district "Bienenfarm" on the road between Berge and Paulinenaue. From the village of Berge, which is about 5 km west of Nauen on the B5, there are signs guiding you to the airfield. You can also get to the airfield from Ribbeck and Selbelang, which are also on the B5, via the signposted paths. Don't be "frightened!" This way will take via typical East-German plate roads ("Plattenwege").

The federal road B5 can be reached from Berlin via Heerstrasse in Spandau out of the city into the direction of Nauen. The B5 then crosses the Berliner Ring (A10) at Spandau junction ("Kreuz Spandau"). Accordingly, the airport is best reached from the north (Hamburg), west (Hanover) and south (Leipzig) via the western Berliner Ring (A10).

To make things simple: Enter the following address into your GPS: Lindholzfarm 1, 14641 Paulinenaue.

By train

The nearest train station is Paulinenaue. The regional train in both directions RE2 stops here once every hour.

Coming from or going to Berlin, you can get on and off at Berlin - Alexanderplatz, Berlin - Friedrichstrasse, Berlin - Hauptbahnhof, Berlin - Zoologischer Garten, or Spandau. Travel time: From Zoologischer Garten, it takes a good half hour to get to the "Farm" for example.

With a short (and timely) phone call to the airfield at +49 33237-88280 we will fetch you from the train station and will also bring you back there. Cost for the shuttle service: 5 EUR.

By bicycle

The fastest Option for cyclists is taking the regional express train RE2 to Paulinenaue. Then ride along the road for about 4 km till you get to the airfield.

For those of you who would like a more detailed explanation: We are practically on the Havelland cycle path ("Havelland-Radweg"), which goes from Berlin through the Krämer Forst regional park to the Westhavelland nature park. From Berlin the airfield is located about one third of the way directly behind Ribbeck.
