The Grossenhain Airfield is one of the oldest operating airfields in Germany and a symbol of the aeronautical tradition of the town. The former military airfield is used since 1993 as a civil public airfield. Today different kinds of aviation sports are practised here. For example powered aviation, ultralight aviation, paragliding and gliding aviation. The airfield is approved for powered airplanes up to 14t take-off weight/up to 19 people. Pilots are flying under respect of visual flight rules (VFR), without radar and without airfield lighting. The adjoining "Fliegendes Museum" (en: flying museum) accommodates a number of rare airworthy old-timer airplanes.
