Straubing Wallmühle Airport is a minor German regional airport, located about 3 miles north-northwest of Straubing in Bavaria. It is used for general aviation.
The airport was built in 1938 as a Luftwaffe airfield, its primary mission being the training of pilots flying Arado Ar 68 biplane advanced trainer. It remained a training airfield throughout most of World War II, although in early 1945 some night fighter interceptor units were assigned to the field as part of the Defense of the Reich campaign.
