On May 31st 1969 this aerodrome was inaugurated under the name: “Aeródromo Pujol-Muntalà” with the authorization of the “Dirección de Aviación Civil”. It’s name comes from two pilot brothers form Manresa: Manel and Ramón Pujol, who developed and promoted this aerodrome privately and in land of their property, offering it to the authorities of that time for any possible emergency.
Eventually the aerodrome stopped being used until it became wilderness zone with lack of activity. Just a few pilots and Flight instructors practiced there because of the open space it offered and the it’s easy use.
