As Iran’s only private-sector airport, Azadi Airport is active in the areas of research, industry, pilot training, and recreation. A special facility to say the least, the airport is a prime destination for anyone who wants to take to the sky.

Located just west of Tehran in Qazvin Province, facilities at the airport include a runway and control tower, hangers and preparation zones for light and ultra-light aircraft, manufacturing and assembly capacity, a terminal, visitor infrastructure, and a meteorology station.

The planned expansions will also benefit the facility’s pilot training program. Currently, the airport offers ultra lightweight pilot training, with over 60 hours of theoretical training and a minimum of 50 hours of flight training, at the end of which an international pilot license is issued on behalf of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). Although an individual has to be 18 to receive certification, the course is open to 15-year-olds and takes three months to complete.

When the expansion is complete, the owners hope to boost training, recreational activities, air shows, and scientific research, as well as open up the market for buying and selling aircraft.
