Latvian Aviation listed the airfields condition as 'good'. Sucessor site MyAirfields considers it 'good', noting it is "quite unknown for general aviation community. It offers clean approach from both sides, clear of obstacles and very good RWY condition. Apron sometimes used for agricultural activities."
The airfield is owned by the municipality of Vecbebri, but uncertified, meaning it is officially closed to all taffic.
