Nadirgul is a small airstrip, 12 nm South-East of Hyderabad located on the Nagarjuna Sagar Highway. Nadirgul airfield has two runways both of which are just about 3000' long and 75' wide. The main runway is paved, while the second runway is un-paved.

This airfield has been serving primarily the needs of the aspiring trainee pilots in Hyderabad. As of now Andhra Pradesh Flying Club(APFC), Flytech Aviation Academy and Rajiv Gandhi Aviation Academy(RGAA) are using this field to train pilots. Flytech Aviation has set up its own hangar in this field.

Nadirgul has no instrument approach procedure laid as there are no radio navigational equipment installed. Nadirgul is classified to VMC conditions and no night landing facilities like REIL, REL, ALS, Taxiway lights, PAPI and VASI etc are installed. The runway orientation is 10-28 paved surface. Interestingly, Nadirgul has an unpaved runway RW10R-RW28L parallel to the paved(and main)runway. The runway is slightly inclined towards RW28 (RW28 is 1804' and RW10 is 1790'). Local surface winds favor the use of RW28 till the late August and RW10 till the late February. Though not designated (and maintained) as a runway, a specific portion of the airfield is left as a cross-runway (RW14-RW32 they call). Though not often used, the primary idea is to facilitate any emergency landings, if needed during the training flights(trainees mostly fly single engine planes like Cessna 152 and Cessna 172). The circuit altitude is 2600' and the pattern is South of the field as North of Nadirgul is residential area. For all practical purposes, METAR and TAFOR issued for Hyderabad airport are used. Also, there is no specific ATC here, but the trainees usually do the needful.

After the opening of the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport at Shamshabad, all the training flights were supposed to be shifted to the Begumpet Airport. But Nadirgul still remains active in service.
