Oława-Stanowice Airport is a former military airport in Poland dating from World War II, situated 12 km northwest of Oława, between the village of Stanowice and the river Oława. It was initially used by the Germans as a Luftwaffe airport under the codename "Kopernikus". Bombers flew from here on missions against Polish cities.
After 1945 it was occupied by the Soviet army. By then it was used as a spare airport. It was never utilized as a primary airport due to its lack of paved runways. Helicopters and piston driven jets were stationed here. Additionally, parachute landings were executed at the airport.
The airport has not been used since the Soviet army departed on 15 October 1992. Attempts to put the estate in working order have been made, such as the localisation of a Bahlsen factory. A string of shelters for flood victims has been erected on the grounds.
The airport had a 13/31 grass runway measuring 2500 x 60 m (elevation 128 m) and is often referred to as Oława-Marcinkowice after a nearby village.
