Ocaña Airfield in Spain up for auction for €1.06m
SENASA has put up for public auction the airfield of Ocaña (Spain) with a minimum bid of € 1,060,000. The sale will be available through Escrapalia, the company awarded with the tender for the marketing and management of the auction.
It has a cadastral area of 379,266 square metres, 74,249 of them built (2.5%), although its potential for development is 5%. It has two crossed runways of 1,280 and 700 metres, the first one partially asphalted (the 20 metres in the middle), and a 23,400 square metre aircraft parking apron. The infrastructure is designed for the operation of aircraft between 15 and 24 metres in size and wingspan. Its airspace has “protected” conditions for the operation of sport aviation and general activities.
The airfield, which is restricted for public, uncontrolled use, can be used for activities related to the aeronautical and innovation industries, such as general and sport aviation, gliding, UAS (drones), aerial work, construction and manufacturing of aeronautical material and R&D projects in mobility or energy efficiency. It is also a suitable facility for the filming and audio-visual production of commercials and movies or for holding events, as well as a logistics, real estate or leisure centre due to its proximity to Madrid.
