Husum-Schwesing Airport, 6 km northeast of the county town of Husum, has become an important part of the infrastructure necessary for the wind industry. As well as business, air ambulance, private and sporting flights, the airfield is also used for helicopter flights for offshore servicing operations to research stations and wind farms, and serves as point of departure for a variety of monitoring flights with multi-engined fixed-wing aeroplanes. Future plans include the option of storing spares and other goods at the airfield to enable the fastest possible aerial deliveries. This is why the operating company, Flughafen Husum GmbH & Co KG, is involved in wind industry company networks.
