Katterbach AHP is located 25 miles WSW of Nuernberg. It is also 3 miles E of the city of Ansbach. The airfield is in the Eastern section of the Frankenhoehe. With an elevation of 1532 feet, there is a natural upslope motion into the Katterbach area. The Schwabische Alb and the Frankische Alb are other small hills that can effect the airfield area. There are no major rivers which effect Katterbach, however small streams and valleys can often be a contributory factor to local fog problems. The predominant type of air mass that effects the local area is Maritime Polar. This air mass produces a typical maritime climate with mild winters and cool summers. The natural upslope motion with westerly winds is a weather producer. The various hills to the south and west do not have a significant effect on the local area.
