Nearest active Air Force Base is Zaragoza which is over 200 miles away .

Nearest Army Aviation Base is a lot further I believe .

There is the Fundació Parc Aeronàutic de Catalunya - Sabadell , which is around 40 miles away and it looks like you need to book a visit in advance , not sure how up to date all the info is .

on the civil side apart from Barcelona and Sabadell

There is a small grass strip airfield around 7 miles away called Aerodromo De Palafoils which has mainly ultra lights and you can book a flight in one if you feel like it .

That's all I know of .

Unfortunately there is nothing military in Catalonia, I've not even heard of Barcelona getting many mil a/c. Your only hope is a visiting Naval ship in Barcelona or a passing CL415.
