Former Tegel operations manager Elmar Kleinert would like to fulfill his dream and fly to a private airport very close to his home. But the neighbors want to thwart his plans. 

Because they fear unbearable engine noise. There should be certainty for both parties by Monday at the latest. The main committee of the community of Märkische Heide, one and a half hours south of Berlin, meets. Right at the top of the agenda: The opinion of the representatives on the "operation of a special airfield in Groß Leuthen" for the aviation authority. What is meant is a 350-meter-long grass runway on the outskirts that Kleinert leased with a friend when he was still working at Tegel Airport. The two aviation fans would own two old propeller machines of the "Piper Cup" type, reports bz-berlin.de. "I want to set off for the Baltic Sea on average once a week," says Kleinert, who is now the airport manager in Bremen - and who owns a weekend house in Groß Leuthen. "Together we applied for 300 take-offs and landings per year."
