Heligoland Airport is a small airport on the German island of Düne, the smaller of the two isles of the Heligoland archipelago in the North Sea, about 70 km (43.5 mi) from the mainland. It is licensed for aeroplanes up to 5700 kg (3541.8 mi) maximum takeoff weight and helicopters up to 10000 kg (6213.7 mi).

Due to the limited length of the runways and adverse wind conditions, the approach to and departure from the airport is demanding, requiring experience and good preparation from pilots. For commercial flights, prior training is mandatory.
