Airport Manager

The Airport Manager (and Dropzone Operator) is Tom McCarthy, one of the finest and friendliest people you could meet in aviation. Buy him a coffee and he could tell you volumes about the history of the place.

World War II history

During the second world war, Gananoque (pronounced "gan-an-AH-kway") was a relief landing field for the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan (BCATP) No. 31 school in nearby Kingston. It has had little modification since, and still maintains the classic BCATP triangular shape (with three runways so that taildraggers could always land into the wind) and, I believe, some of the original World War II structures.

Skydiving

There is a lot of skydiving at Gananoque, so it's important to keep a sharp eye out if you're landing here.
