Logovardi Airport (Macedonian: Аеродром Логоварди, Aerodrom Logovardi) is an airport that stretches nearly 9 km (6 mi) and is located in Bitola, Republic of Macedonia.

Service[edit]

On July 23, 2007, the Logovardi Airport was used as a base for firefighting to combat wildfires within the region.

In the 1970s and 80s, the Aero Club Mirko Todorovski hosted a popular air show each May. The airshow ended, however, after the breakup of Yugoslavia. On May 24, 2008, after 20 years of inactivity, the Logovardi Airport was reopened as a gathering spot for air enthusiasts from across Macedonia. The annual air show has since been resumed by Mirko Todorovski. The most recent of these performances was the Bitola and Bitola Air Race which took place on September 9, 2011.[1]

History[edit]

In 1935, Aeroput opened the Belgrade-Niš-Bitola line with a Spartan Cruiser II plane.[2]
