The Hrabušice Podlesok Special Airport was established in 2023. The airport was set up in response to the increase in interest in air tourism and recreational flights for the pleasure of flying. By launching it, we ensured better use of the Podlesok tourist centre for sport and recreational flying, but also as an interesting transport option for visitors to the Slovak Paradise. The special airport with a runway length of 370 m is designed for the operation of sport aircraft and tourist flights within the Schengen area.

Today the airport is used by pilots and crews from various countries, especially from the Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary and Slovakia. It offers spectacular views of the Slovak Paradise, especially during morning flights at sunrise or sunset over the High Tatras and Kralova Hora. Operation is possible during daylight hours according to VFR flight rules
