About aerodrome - General

Aerodrome Spilve, previous names - Spilve Air Port or Air Port of Riga (1928-1940), later the Riga Central Airport, was the main airport of Riga city until the new airport "Riga" was commissioned in 1975, and it still retains its role in Latvian aviation. Now Spilve supports mainly private and training flights. Currently, airfield may be used for aircraft with maximum take-off weight of 5.7 tons.

Aerodrome is located in Riga, on the left bank of Daugava River, in Spilve meadows, near Iļģuciems.

The operator ensuring the daily operation of the aerodrome is the foundation "Lidosta Spilve". All flight and parking fees received from pilots are spent on daily "chores" - wages for our 3 guards and maintenance as much as we can afford, most of it being pavement repairs, mowing and snow clearance. The management board of the foundation consists of three volunteers: Jānis Maslovskis, Dmitrijs Kušiņičevs, and Jaroslavs Gaļejevs

Foundation "Lidosta Spilve" has also received the public benefit organization status from tax authorities which means we can accept donations from both privates and companies without creating any tax burden to them. If you are interested in donating details please contact one of the board members of the foundation.
