- Size restriction advisory: Airfield is reserved for smaller aircraft.
Replacing Balista's previous airport - AyUp! Naway Airport - Calpe Airfield was a privately owned civilian airfield and marina. Although open to all aviators (the runway was large enough to accommodate larger aircraft) management requested that only light aircraft and jets land.
Calpe Airfield was home to the Biggin Hill heritage hangar, dedicated to London Biggin Hill Airport. Biggin Hill is best known for its role during the Battle of Britain in the Second World War, when it served as one of the principal fighter bases protecting London and South East England from attack by enemy bombers. Over the course of the war, fighters based at Biggin Hill claimed 1,400 enemy aircraft, at the cost of the lives of 453 Biggin Hill based aircrew.
After several years of sustained operation, Calpe Airfield was dismantled in September 2015 and its land parcel put up for sale.
There are no longer scheduled services to and from Calpe Airfield, as of September 2015.
