Information about the airfield Svensk version

Varbergs airfield, ESGV, is located on “Getterön” just NW of Varberg, Sweden. It is an approved airfield for general aviation.
The active landing strip 12/30 is marked with red and white cones and provides 600 m for take-off. The threshold of runway 30 is displaced by 50 m to provide a clear approach over the road, Getterövägen.
NOTE: Runway 06/24 has been closed by Environmental Court ruling, and may only be used by aircraft with specific permission.
Airfield elevation is 3 ft (1 m) ASL. The airfield is well drained although the surface softens during periods of heavy rainfall.
Airfield access can be problematic, especially during the winter. Snow is normally not cleared. PPR applies during the winter up to April 15. Call VFK at +46 340-19800 or direct to Field monitor Ingolf Johnsson +46 733-300454.
The airfield is situated between a bird sanctuary and an extensive recreational area on Getterön with numerous seasonal and permanent residences.
During the summer, Getterön is one of Varbergs most popular beach and bathing areas and therefore we must take specific consideration regarding noise disturbances over the area.
In order to minimize noise disturbances we use a left traffic circuit at 800 ft. Avoid flying over buildings, beaches, and the Getterön bird sanctuary.
ESGV is situated under Gothenburg TMA which has it’s base starting at 4500 ft MSL.
