There is also a rescue helicopter stationed at ESMK and  it operates also outside tower hours.

Visiting the club (non-commercial, MTOW < 2500 kg)

If you would like assistance from the club (but not refueling), contact us preferably via (is checked several times per day) and provide us with ETA/ETD,  registration and other information. You could also call +46 734 42 68 60 but we are not always able to answer.
There is no personel stationed at the club so we do prefer to have a heads-up of your arrival at least a couple of days in advance.

If you arrive and need to leave the field ”via the ground” (and nobody is present) there is a one way gate you could use. When coming back and the club is closed then you need to ask if the personnel at th eterminal could let you through (if its open), otherwise you need to contact the club via the number above.

If you would like to have it inside a hangar (if there is space) then the fee is 100 SEK / 10€ per 24 hours.
