The Regensburg airfield was located about two kilometers west of the old town of Regensburg in what is now the west quarter of the Danube arch near the northernmost point of the Danube .  In the immediate vicinity between fields and meadows there were only the Barmherzige Brüder hospital and the former horse racing field at that time . It was not until 1933 that the Westheimsiedlung was built directly to the east of the airfield and, in 1937, the Messerschmitt factory in Regensburg south of the airfield . 
Today, the Infineon (formerly Siemens ) chip plant is located on the site of the former airfield, as well as the Danube Park, the largest park in the city of Regensburg with the Regensburg Baggersee and the Westbad .
As early as 1920–1930, the first flying days took place on the racing course in Regensburg -prüfunging and the meadows in the direction of the Danube.  By Lufthansa were daily in the 1930s by Regensburg scheduled flights to Munich or regular flights to Fuerth-Nuremberg and Plauen offered. 
With the establishment of the Messerschmitt works in 1937, the airfield was used for military purposes in addition to civil aviation.  Subsequently, the airfield was also called "Messerschmitt Airfield". Around 1943, the Messerschmitt factory in Regensburg is said to have been the second largest aircraft factory in Europe, which shows the importance of the airfield.  In the 1940s there were consequently considerations to expand the airfield to the east. Among other things, the nearby Westheimsiedlung should have given way. The project ultimately failed due to the course of the war. During World War II, the works were repeatedly targeted by American air raids, only the former administration building, which today houses the commercial vocational school, and part of the paint shop near the airfield are still preserved.

After the Second World War , the Americans took over the airfield. Immediately north of the airfield towards the Danube, more and more gravel was extracted in the 1950s, but this did not affect flight operations at the time. After regaining air sovereignty in 1955, the first major flight day after World War II took place at the airfield on September 9, 1956, which the Regensburg people also watched from the Winzerer Heights . The organizer of the other flight days in the following years was the Luftsportverein Regensburg e. V. 
As a result, the airfield was increasingly used for civil aviation by the Sportfliegerclub Regensburg e. V. used. Flight operations were relocated to Regensburg-Oberhub , Oberhinkofen and Wenzenbach airfields in 1960 . With the sale of the land and the resulting closure of the Regensburg airfield, a longstanding aviation tradition in Regensburg came to an end in 1961.  The preserved hall of the former Messerschmitt works, also used by the aviation clubs, is now used by Infineon as a dispatch and goods receiving hall . The only reminder of the former airfield are numerous streets in the west quarter, which are named after aviation pioneers. The Danube Park is located on the site of the former airfield next to the Infineon plantwith the Westbad and the Baggerweiher , the largest lake in the city.
