Wonderful Service & Free to land Private Planes

Port Hawkesbury Airport - Landed there a few weeks ago and it was a pleasure! Recently they had new ownership and I have to say they are great! They are offering more then ever; including ice, water/Gatorade and always have coffee brewing. Staff was extremely accommodating and eager to help. They had competitive fuel prices and no landing fee for private aircrafts which is great! Will be back.

Love the free landing

It's nice to land at an airport that wants the business for their community, CYPD is a friendly airport, cheaper fuel, no landing fees for private light aircraft as specified in their literature. However, like all airports as a port of entry make sure you know the entry procedures and when customs will serve you and the associated costs.

Free and friendly

This is a very nice, clean and friendly airport with no landing fees for private aircraft. I've landed here a few times for cheap fuel. Additionally it is a great starting place to fly around one of the most beautiful landscape areas in Canada.

It's the summer of 2013 and the flying is great, people in Nova Scotia are very friendly,courteous and so easy going.

Still stinging

Private aircraft landing in Port Hawkesbury will be charged $500.00 fee from the airport authority. If you have any questions you can email me at tony@empirearchives.com. Things are not always what they seem and these people who run this airport don't care.

Landing Fee note

"Private aircraft will not be charged a landing fee however, a landing fee will be applied to all military, government and commercial aircraft." http://www.porthawkesburyairport.com/products.htm

Stay away $500.00 fee

This was a private airplane that was charged the $500.00 fee. It said nothing about it on their website. They said no one ever complained about it before. I replied the landing fee at JFK in New York was a deal at $150.00 compared to Port Hawksbury. I will be contacting AOPA and CAPA about the fee.

More on fees

This page does say that the airport has landing fees for commercial and military aircraft, but it doesn't specify the amounts: http://www.porthawkesburyairport.com/news.htm

re: Landing fee at Port Hawkesbury Airport Canada

I'm sorry to hear about the fee. Certainly, there was none for my little Piper a few years ago when I visited. I hope someone from the airport can comment on this incident.

Landing fee at Port Hawkesbury Airport Canada

Stay away. After contacting CannPass and recieving port or entry approval to land at Port Hawksbury, We were on short final gear down. The airport personal asked what type of aircraft we were. They then informed us that there will be a $500.00 landing fee. Remember their website says there is no landing fee. They were glad to charge this fee and said no other pilots complained about this fee. Looks like our US dollars will never go back.

Be careful scud running

I landed here a few years ago. It's a very nice airport, but I would not recommend coming in VFR in marginal conditions unless you know the area well -- there's a high cable crossing across the Strait of Canso just to the west of the airport.

My favourite airport!!!

This is truly my favourite airport. Not only can one consider it the gateway to beautiful Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, but I had the best reception ever, walking into the "terminal". This is a very small operation ... but a number of the local men (airplane enthusiasts all) were just hanging out there, chatting away, happy to talk to me about our plane, the flight, their planes and so on. We really had to tear ourselves away, as I think they would have chatted with us well into the night ...
