Bilaspur Airport

Bilaspur Airport (IATA: PAB, ICAO: VABI) is located at the village of Chakarbhatta, 10 km south of Bilaspur, in the state of Chhattisgarh, India. It is owned by the Airports Authority of India (AAI). It is currently being used for general aviation and pilot training.

The Indian Army intends to take over the airport and establish a training facility for the Special Forces. The existing para-commando training facility at Nahan, Himachal Pradesh will be shifted to Bilaspur, Chhattisgarh. The Army wants use of the entire airport while AAI has made a “conditional offer” of parting with 377 acres while retaining 56 acres for a civil enclave.

Elevation of the airfield is 276 metres AMSL. Runway 17/35 is 1535 metres long and 25 metres wide with turning pads at both ends. A 630 metres long taxiway connects the runway to a small helipad cum apron.

The runway is too small for commercial aircraft like Boeing 737 and Airbus A320 which required 2,090 m (6,860 ft) takeoff distance. This means low cost carriers like IndiGo and SpiceJet which are using single plane type cannot serve the airport unless runway is upgraded.
