Buttwill airfield was built to replace Spreitenbach airfield, which had to give way to the Limmattal marshalling yard and the ever-expanding Zurich airport.
The airfield is mainly used by the flying school for flight training, but also for work and cargo flights to supply the mountains and mountain huts in the region.
