Airport Rognan (ENRG) -as well as the others- is the place where the sun never sets…
An airport in Rognan was first considered by the Royal Air Force during the Norwegian Campaign in May 1940, although the plans were never carried through. Instead, construction was carried out by Luftwaffe. Preliminary work started in late 1941 and the airport was completed the following year. It received a runway measuring 1,200 by 60 meters (3,940 by 200 ft), with a combined wooden and concrete surface. The Luftwaffe used the airport little, and it was mostly retained as a reserve airport for Bodø Air Station. For a period a squadron of Junkers Ju 52 transporters were stationed at Rognan.
After the war the airport was taken over by the municipality and has been used for general aviation. A contributing factor has been the high load on Bodø Airport, which has caused restrictions on use by recreational aircraft. Especially sailplane activities were allocated to Rognan. Saltdal Flyklubb was established as a local aviation club in 1993. It took over the responsibility for operating the airport, although it remained owned by the municipality.
