1.The Original

The idea to found the military aero club 'Habicht' was, that also other soldiers who are not assigned to the air force can have the opportunity to fly. Furthermore interested recruits should have the opportunity to have a closer look behind the scenes of the air force before they make their final decision of joining in. The club developed since the start in 1962 at the military airfield Langenlebarn near Tulln / Lower Austria, into a very active one.

The airfield is located inside the 'Tullner basin' in Lower Austria. The airbase 'Brumowski' is used by the Austrian air force for training as well as a regular base. The aero club was founded in 1962 and, since then, is a part of the airbase.

The airbase 'Brumowski' is a military airfield with barracks of the Austrian air force. It is home of the air support squadron as well as the maintainance unit 1.


Even the military of the first republic of Austria planned to have an airfield at this location.

After the infiltration of the Germans in 1938, the air force used those plans to build the airfield. Because the people living in the vicinity where recruited to help with the works, the project was almost finished on the 8th of March 1939. Additional to the airfield the forces built houses next to the airfield for the personal and pilots. For training purposes they also built secondary runways outside the airbase.

Main target of the airbase during WWII was the training of new pilots in the flying school 'F.F.S. A/B 112 Tulln' and the air war school 'Luftkriegsschule 7 Tulln'. For a short peroid also the flying school 'F.F.S. 114 Zwölfaxing' and the air force recruitment battalion 114 where based here. Furthermore some of the active wings where based on occasional basis. For example from May to June 1942 the 2nd wing of the 'Sturzkampfgeschwader' 2 (II./StG 2) and in march 1944 the 3rd group of the 'Kampfgeschwader' 30 (III./KG 30) where based here.

Even though the allied forces did heavy bombing in the east region of Vienna as well as in the western region of Tulln – arms factory 'Hydrierwerk Moosbierbaum' – the airfield was not a primary target from the beginning. The attacks started much later and in March 1945 the airplanes were moved to the west.


End of war and and during occupation

As russian forces reached the region on the 7th of April 1945 main parts of the airfield were blasted by the German 'Waffen-SS'. On the same day the airfield, on which the air war school 3 from the airfield 'Oschatz' in Sachsen / Germany was relocated shortly before, was occupied by the red army. The northern riverside of the Danube river was held until the end of war by German forces. During artillery fights over the river the airfield was damaged.

In July 1945 the airfield was handed over to the US forces. A route from the US Air Force Station Tulln to Vienna, which was occupied by all four allied forces, was set in place. In Novemeber of the same year a squadron of transport aircrafts were based in Langenlebarn. The airfield was now used for military as well as civil purposes. Four civil airlines used the 'Tulln Airbase' – which was the new name of the airfield. Under this airlines was also PanAm which flew from June 1946 the route New York – Tulln Airbase.

A lot of VIP's like Robert Stolz and Hanns Eisler used this route to come back from their exils in the US. Also John Foster Dulles used this route to come and sign the Austrian independence treaty.

Austrian forces

After the signation of the Austrian independence treaty on the 15th of May 1955 the allied forces began to clear the airbase and on 30th of September 1955 the airfield was handed over to the Austrian air force.

During the 10 years of occupation the US forces did only a minimum to maintain the airfield. A lot of buildings were still damaged and not only the Austrian aif force had to be set up new as well as the airbase itself.

The first take off from the new airfield was made on the 9th December 1955 by Lt.Col. Gustav Hauck in a Jak-18 with the number 3A-AB.

1967 the airbase was named to 'Fliegerhorst Brumowski Langenlebarn-Tulln'. Named after Godwin Brumowski, the most successful fighter pilot of Austria-Hungary during WWI.

Since 1968 the highschool for aeronautics is located on the site of the airfield with technician students for military as well as civil aviation.

Since 2007 all military aviation academies from Austria, which were located all over the country, are now located only there as one big academy.

In May 2011 were 8 Alouette III, 11 Bell OH-58, 9 Sikorsky S-70 helicopters and 13 Pilatus PC-6 airplanes based on the airfield.

5.Recommended settings

To visualize all light effects, HDR should be activated. The higher the settings for "texture resolution" and "airport detail" the better the quality of the scenery but the more affect on the FPS ratio.

"runways follow terrain contours" has to be OFF!
