Comment "Spent some time around here!" on Resolute Bay Airport, Canada

Not a scenic place. Oddity of an airstrip too. Maintenance is good here, big strip (6000ft+) Somewhat of an ILS when it works. 2 NDBs. But same thing across the territory, unreliable service. The radio weather guy is usually high or drunk or having a social club in the weather office often stinks like booze or cannabis. You go in there and the guy gives you his whole life story. They aren't sure if they are CARS, FIC, or ATC. The zone is a bit confusing too, 25 mile control zone, but uncontrolled airspace. Same problem with maintenance on the runway as many northern strips. When I was there a few years back we had a near miss. I think they fired a guy over it and hired him back in another airfield. This one is staffed around the clock for weather; just go give the cars guy a nudge to wake up first. Nice to catch the news or some tunes on the mf though, its usually blasting in the background when you call up hhehe
