Seppe AirportEdit profile
Seppe Airport (Dutch: Vliegveld Seppe (ICAO: EHSE)) is a small general aviation airfield located next to the A58 motorway on the outskirts of Bosschenhoofd, a village in the municipality of Halderberge in the province of North Brabant in the Netherlands. The airport takes its name from the village's nickname. It is located 2 NM (3.7 km; 2.3 mi) southwest of Hoeven, 7.5 NM (13.9 km; 8.6 mi) west from Breda and 4 NM (7.4 km; 4.6 mi) east-northeast of Roosendaal.
The airport has one single asphalt runway, 07/25, with a length of 830 m (2,723 ft) and a significantly displaced threshold (meaning an area at the beginning of that runway is not to be used for landing) on either side.
Seppe Airport started in 1949 as a glider field and has been used by powered aircraft since 1969. In 2002, the runway surface was changed from grass to asphalt. The airfield is not to be used by aircraft using jet engines. Around 50,000 airplane movements (a movement being a take-off or a landing) are made at Seppe annually.
The airfield is also home to a small flying museum, Vliegend Museum Seppe (The Flying Museum of Seppe), having various aircraft, most of which are still airworthy, such as a de Havilland Tiger Moth and a Yakovlev Yak-52.
