WELCOME AT THE FRIENDLY ALTERNATIVE!

The Towercrew of Texel International Airport: Ed de Bruijn (airport director) and Mike de Bruijn (ass. airport manager).

Texel Aerodrome is fortunate in its position, on the beautiful isle of Texel in the Netherlands.  The main runway is grass and aligned to benefit from the prevailing wind while minimising disturbance to local residents.  

There is also a grass runway which can be used if the wind is strongly across the main runway.  

A Duty Officer supervises flying operations from the 'Tower'. As is common with smaller aerodromes, there is no full Air Traffic Control service, but the duty officer provides an advisory radio service, either a Flight Information Service or an Air/Ground Radio Service. Weather forecasts are received regularly from the Met. Office and made available to pilots. 

Procedures are in place for the smooth handling of International Flights. Customs, are available on the airfield. 

On the airport is a nice hotel and a popular restaurant with a good view on the aerodrome where all the action takes place. The aerodrome is home for a number of businesses and privately owned aircraft. 

Texel Aerodrome provides access to a very useful alternative means of transport as well as providing employment for many local people.
