The course is 1.5 kilometers north of the town center of Heubach on the district of Böbingen an der Rems in front of the Albtrauf . The federal highway 29 , via which there is a fast connection to the greater Stuttgart area and the federal highway 7 , runs 2 km north of the square. The Remsbahn runs parallel to the main road (Stuttgart – Aalen line), accessible from Böbingen an der Rems station.
Heubacher Flugplatz was founded in 1961 by Triumph International for company traffic . As a special landing site , it was also approved for general traffic with aircraft up to 5.7 t take-off weight, self-launching motor gliders and helicopters. At that time, the asphalt track had the dimensions 500 × 20 m, which was completely sufficient for the single-engine Dornier Do 27 , which at the time served as a company aircraft . The runway was initially only connected to the apron by a single taxiway. Hall 1, next to the tower , was the only place to park aircraft. In 1962 the airfield was equipped with night flight lights and datedFederal Minister of the Interior approved as a border crossing point .
To operate a larger company aircraft, a twin-engine Rockwell Turbo Commander , the runway was extended in 1965 to the 750 m that is still valid today. In the following years, the Triumph company built a second, slightly higher hangar next to Hall 1.
In 1971 the city of Heubach finally acquired the airfield from the Triumph company. In 1974 the special airfield was approved as a commercial airfield and is therefore compulsory to operate at the published times. The service is shared by two full-time flight controllers , who also work as officers for air surveillance for the state of Baden-Württemberg and as auxiliary police officers for the federal police .
In 1976 the city of Heubach built a third aircraft hangar (single box hangar). As the runway from the tower was no longer fully visible through this hall, the tower was extended in 1978. During this time, a private investor also built the Am Flugplatz restaurant .
In 2005, the gas station had to be renovated due to the requirements of the water management office and the TÜV . In this context, the range was expanded to include two types of fuel. In addition to AVGAS , Super plus and Jet A-1 (kerosene) can now also be refueled. This measure has significantly improved the economy of the place.
In 2011 the runway was repaved and new markings were made on the runway and the apron.
