Bückeburg Military Airfield

Bückeburg Military Airfield

Bückeburg is a small town in Lower Saxony, Germany. It was once the capital of the tiny principality of Schaumburg-Lippe and is today situated in the district of Schaumburg at the northern slopes of the Weserbergland mountains. Population: 20,800.

The castle of Bückeburg was once the residence of the princes. Even today the princes of Schaumburg-Lippe live there, but of course without political power. The interior of the castle has impressive furnishing. Nearby is the mausoleum of the princes' family, which was built in 1915. It resembles a smaller copy of the Roman Pantheon.

In Bückeburg there is also a helicopter museum, exposing the early drawings of flying objects by Leonardo da Vinci as well as 40 genuine helicopters.

German Army's Light Aviation School ( or "Heeresfliegerwaffenschule" ) is established at Bückeburg-Achum airfield since January 13, 1960. Both military pilots and technicians get their training there.

Pilots who are training on Bo 105's, EC135's, UH-1D's or CH-53G's usually fly to some nearby training fields. This allows them to train in different terrain configurations and avoid helicopter flight concentration being too close to Bückeburg.

In order to complete their basic skils, pilots are regularlygoing to train in Bavarian mountains where specific courses take place. From time to time, exercices are also organized at Le Cannet-des-Maures ( Le Luc ) in France where better climatic conditions allow more intensive flight schedules.

The Alouette II is today the oldest operational helicopter in service at the German Army. In the past, this type of helicopter was used for liaison and observation tasks but nowadays its role is only confined to basic pilot training. It should be replaced soon by the "hi-tec" EC135 in this role.

An era that started in 1958 will end when the last German military Alouette will land after its last flight, but nevertheless the "Heeresflieger" will remain in the memories as the largest non-French customer for both the Artouste and Astazou Alouette II models.
