”The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.”
It’s been four years since Malmigate joined Twitter and started blogging. The only general aviation airport in Helsinki, the Malmi Airport, was scheduled to be closed on 31st of December 2016. Something else happened. The airport is active and during the COVID-19 crisis it was one of the most active airports in Finland. Perhaps even the most active. Which is not a surprise. According to statistics Malmi Airport with it’s about 40 000 operations every year is a very active general aviation airport.
The Malmi Airport is also an important venue for popular events such as the FHRA events and many others. In 2019 Ed Sheeran performed twice at the airport and both concerts were practically sold out.
