Summary in english

Ljungbyhed Air is a business community and venue that gathers aviation training organisations, members of the aviation industry and researchers. It comprises public actors, academia and actors from the business sector. The vision is to form a Scandinavian- and eventually a European center for aviation related training and research.


Ljungbyhed is one of the oldest airports in the world. The first successful flight was performed here in 1910. Flight training has been conducted at Ljungbyhed since 1915.


The airfield has a unique infrastructure built for and by aviation stakeholders. The airport with its surrounding airspace become a strategic development center.

Today, Ljungbyhed is also one of the busiest airports in Sweden in terms of takeoffs and landings. The environmental concession includes flight operations over 90 000 takeoffs and landings per annum. The unique infrastructure and airspace availability for flight training makes Ljungbyhed the perfect place for all aviation related training and development.

Today, Ljungbyhed airport already houses both flight training as well as maintenance training. More aviation related activities will be introduced.

The airport and its facilities is owned by PEAB AB, one of the Nordic region’s leading construction and civil engineering companies.
