Historia de la Base Aérea y Aeropuerto de Salamanca

  • Luis Utrilla
Language of the publication:

Salamanca, a centre for education and culture since the Middle Ages, has always been a place of continuous pilgrimage and transit for students and visitors and, therefore, it is not surprising that as far back as the thirties it already had an aerodrome. Over the years, this facility gave rise to the establishment of an important centre for aeronautical training, both for civilians and military personnel, which today continues to represent an added value in airport activities.

As an airport, following its opening to civil traffic in 1937, it has contributed to the development of air transport. With the deregulation of this activity it has regained its commercial importance, especially with the improvements that Aena has made to its facilities, building a modern, functional terminal that hosted the Latin American Summit in the autumn of 2005.

All of these years have been filled with memorable characters, curiosities and anecdotes, many of them reflected in the pictures in this book that provides valuable testimony to the aeronautical history of Salamanca and is a document of interest to all those who read it.
