Anyone been to Ourique or Zambujeira in Portugal?


After a long while I’m looking into a potential trip again. My destination would be a place not far away from Ourique in Portugal. There isn’t really a regular airport nearby

I found on these two airfields:

Based on some research those seem to be short UL fields and likely not usable for a Cirrus SR22. But it never hurts to ask and learn more. Anyone knows more about these?

We might have to fly into Faro LPFR and get a rental car :-(

Obviously I won’t fly anywhere as long as “the virus” is still going on so this is just planning and to see what might be possible.

there used to be a great site about all those little airfields in Portugal including contact information.
Unfortunately, it went offline -but it can still be found using an archiver site

OMG, that website still exists ! Used it a lot many, many years ago, brings back fond memories. Wonder when the last update was made.

Thanks @FlyPPI.

These old pictures look good. But then – given the information is correct – 400 m for Ourique is a bit on the short side.

All the certified aerodromes are on the VFR Manual at

Most of the info on the old site is now at
