Helsinki-Malmi Airport is Helsinki’s international general aviation airport. It serves pilot training, professional, business and recreational aviation, and offers an extensive range of aviation services from aircraft and helicopter maintenance and repairs to aircraft rental. Several pilot schools and flying clubs are located at Helsinki-Malmi, and it is among other things the home of Finland’s only aviation scout troop Malmin Tuulenkävijät. The Airport is an excellent place to get to know the wonder of aviation!
The Airport is open for everyone to visit, and the busy aviation activities can be followed at close range. In March 2016, Helsinki-Malmi Airport was selected as one of the 7 Most Endangered Cultural Heritage Sites in Europe, so it’s well worth getting to know.
Many kinds of activities and events are organized at the Airport, so please follow the events calendar. Sightseeing flights and (tandem) parachute jumps can be purchased at the Airport, and it has a cozy restaurant with a weekend brunch that has been ranked as one of the best in Helsinki – a table reservation is recommended! In addition there’s a 5,8 km walkway around the Airport, offering a chance to get acquainted with the unique nature around the place while following the aviation activities.
The future of Helsinki-Malmi Airport is threatened by the City of Helsinki’s intention to turn it into a residential area. No binding decisions have been made yet, so it’s worthwhile to contact your City Councillor and tell why the Airport is important as it is. Come get acquainted with Helsinki-Malmi Airport and help keep it in aviation use!
